Who Jumped It Best? #AEC16 Edition

Somehow we made it through five days of the USEA American Eventing Championship without posting a single Who Jumped It Best. Fear not, now is your chance to choose which Junior Novice horse and rider combination present the best overall picture as they leap over the iconic AEC show jump, which incidentally didn’t make an appearance until the final day of competition.

Being that this was a championship event and we’re looking at some of the country’s best Junior Novice pairs, we’ve made this edition of WJIB slightly more difficult. The angle that the photo was taken is slightly more closed than the typical 45 degrees that makes easier to judge a rider’s leg position and a horse’s bascule.

Vote in the poll at the bottom of the post for which horse and rider you think present the best overall picture. It’s a tough choice this time around and better you than me! Good luck and remember … it’s all in good fun.
