Saturday Links from Tipperary

If I were standing next to a drop higher than my head, expecting to ride it the next day, I don’t think I’d be smiling; but then again, I’m not Ingrid Klimke. To put it further into perspective (as if you need more proof of how big these fences are) she’s 5’8″ – that’s a pretty average human height (and 2″ taller than myself I might add). I think I’ll stick to Beginner Novice for the time being, thank you very much, but you can bet I’ll be glued to the Badminton live stream today! Watch live here.
