95 percent perfect. 5 percent epic fail. Halfway through a beautiful derby round we misread the skinny log in the water and Fleur ended up straddling the jump. Reversing off the log was not elegant. But after Fleur and I both resting our legs in ice and enjoying some tequila (well, tequila for me) everything will seem better tomorrow. #eventerproblem #eventer #pain #horse #horses #aiken #eventerproblems A photo posted by Julie Clark (@clarkeventing) on
