Like Flying


This is my daughter at a Show Jumping competition at the weekend. As you’d imagine, I took a LOT of photos, and after sifting through them all, I think this is the best one. It’s well-focused (unlike many of the photos!) and I like how my daughter’s face is showing how much she is concentrating, but also having a great time. She says that jumping on a horse is like flying! And below you can see that when she’s finished concentrating hard, she is just so happy to be on a horse. I’ve never ridden a horse in my life, and am never likely to, but I can see how happy it makes her, and that makes me happy too 🙂


Edited to add one more photo, as my daughter complained that I didn’t put one of her actually in the action of jumping (flying)! So here she is in the air:
