This jump at Adelaide CCI**** had everyone talking – a bounce of two massive round-topped obstacles, set on the top of a small hill – the horse couldn’t see that another effort was requried, until it was cresting rthe first one. It was up to the rider to make sure that the horse got the right message. No dramas at this fence though – one rider fall, with no bad outcome.
This was Marcia Williamson riding Kalason.

    Grand jump and marvellous image.

  • Thanks A, it jumped well apparently (she’s the only rider I saw go through), but it was definitely a rider frightener.

    A rider frightener indeed – this photo is of me and my wonderful horse Clyde, and I can cheerfully tell you that I was very worried about this fence. It rode very well for us, and Denzil has done a wonderful job to capture this moment, right when both horse and rider know that they are going to land safely on the other side. Not an easy fence for the photographer either, Denzil would have had no warning of our approach as we would have been shielded from view by the hill!!!

    Fantastic job!!

  • Good job Marcia, good job Clyde!!!!
