Normally, I try to move around a course when I’m photographing, but this Advanced corner at the Stable View Oktoberfest Advanced Horse Trial was so impressive I could not persuade my feet to move to another fence. Caroline Martin’s 9-year-old Warmblood is one of my favorite jumping horses. Can you see why?! Wee!
