I wish the photographer still had the picture on the website. Let me see if I can dig it up.
I had a major "OH SH!T" face. I was riding a HOT & super green Thoroughbred, doing Jumpers, and even with a big bit I still had a hard time keeping him underneath me.
I believe we ended up taking 2nd or 3rd still, but there was one jump that he completely ditched the idea of listening to me and decided he didn't need my help. The look on my face was priceless going over the jump.
I was looking down, to make sure he was going to clear it, and my face was a total 'O'.
Haha I got out of my terrified face and now I always smile waaaaaaaaaay big when I jump Brutus.
Its completely unintentional. It almost looks like I'm in pain I'm smiling so much.
My sister, with her old horse. She looks like she's in pain! On a side not I think that's me on Brutus in the background!
Fiona always makes people look terrified. Probably the fact that she's 13.2 which makes her jump enormous and she like to go fast A friend of mine, who was riding her before I started leasing her shows this best:
I didn't show it quite so well. On the full size of this I look really concerned, its hard to see on the version the photographer put up but my you can kinda see the way they arched. :P
