Jenny and her horse J.B.
JB approaching jump. She’s an Arab horse, JB is short for Jay Belinda, no I didn’t name her. Notice how my right arm is automatically in the right place to hold the reins, even tho I can’t hold them….it does this by itself. JB doesn’t have more than 4 legs, that’s my daughter’s horse behind me. My horse’s pricked ears and raised tail indicate she’s feeling frisky. I should have noted this…….
JB after jump….this is how horses deal with one armed riders. JB has put her head in the air, pulling the reins out of my hand. This means I now have no brakes, leaving JB free to charge at and scare the crap out of the photographer. She had done the same jump 4 times in an effort to get the crucial mid air shot, horses get bored and grumpy too! Note also my unsympathetic laughter…….
