Sunday Video: The Finish Line

Cross country day brings a wave of emotions, from the highest highs to the lowest lows, for any and every individual involved in eventing. The finish line, especially, at a three-day event radiates with energy as a rider and his or her team simultaneously reflect on the minutes and jumps that have so recently passed while carefully tending to the animal that carried them there, to the end.

Expertly captured at the Boekelo finish line by renowned equine photographer Arnd Bronkhorst, the breathtaking moments reflected in this video come as close as one could to summing up the intensity of the day.
