    Default The story behind an amazing photo!

    Up on the Chronicle's main website today is a photo that's gone viral on Facebook that last few days! We not only traced the photo back to the photographer, but also got the whole story behind the image (which isn't Photoshopped!!!)

    Check it out...

    Wow. I had seen that picture, and it did look like Photoshop was involved!

    Very cool. Although I am confused about the part that say she shows as an amateur, while it seems she was riding this horse for a client?

    You're confusing the two ladies. The lady riding (Sarah Conyers) is a pro, while the lady that owned him (Karina Busch) and showed him the rest of the year is the ammy.

    Got it! Thank you! I assumed I was missing something, but I couldn't figure out what!

    There's a similarly WOW photo of a greenie's first overjump that Maple Shade had of a horse bought by another COTHer. Maybe they'll share that photo too!?

    I love how he's all "ahhh I don't want to touch that thing!"
    What a good boy! Took the jump even though it was surely going to eat him.

    For the people who asked about him, here is a video of Cassendro as a 5yo at the show where he was sold. His new owner loves the little guy. He was a LOT of fun to raise and train and we had a ton of fun taking him to the shows. He was popular then and also now!
