Cross Country Splash

Yesterday my daughter was having a Cross Country riding lesson with friends. They are preparing for a Cross Country event at the end of the month. As usual I took a lot of photos all around the course, but this jump was definitely my favourite. It was great fun getting shots of the riders enveloped in spray from the splashing of the ponies’ hooves in the water!

First they went the easy way – in and out via sloping banks…




Then the harder way – out of the water up a step …




In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Enveloped.”

I like to take photos and write words ...


  1. These are wonderful action shots and a terrific challenge response. Your daughter looks like quite the horsewoman! My granddaughter has been riding for just over a year and I’ll send her these shots as something to look forward to!!
