It feels just like it looks....exhilarating!

A compilation of horses running the cross country portion of Eventing at the summer games in England. Eventing is a sport in the truest sense of the word. It is a test of skill, courage, strength, training, athleticism, and, perhaps more than any other sport, teamwork. To forge a partnership with an animal who will willingly carry you over obstacles and terrain that are challenging, exhausting, yes, even sometimes dangerous, is an amazing feeling.

People do get injured. Often. Horses as well, it must be said. There is great risk in this sport. But that is what makes it all about living.

Kick ON!


  1. Just as I suspected. You're a privileged white woman of the horse-jumper set!

    Yeah, I'm getting a handle on this whole class envy thing. *Jealous!*


    1. Privileged? No.
      White woman? Yes.
      Horse-jumper? HELL, YES!
