    This mare is not an easy ride.

    Something about history repeating itself.

    But Hawley must have known that going in. She thought she could manage it; she thought there might be a different ending this time.

    Not true, IME.

    My favorite was the max height downhill oxer as the first fence at BN. Riders complained about it, but were scolded by the TD and GJ that this jump was there because the 'riders...

    Great story. Horses have a way of playing with our expectations.

    Balance, my dear. JMP is all about balance. Which is why he can duck (he still ducks, even today, even looks down/back at the fence, hunter-style) and his leg never moves.
