Why are you like this. Photo of Turkey by me.

I can’t be the only one who obsessively refreshes the official photographer page after an event, especially when I know my horse had some quite, uh, interesting jumps a few times on course. Then, once they’re posted, I maybe buy a few for online use, and then I’m busy obsessively refreshing my email waiting for them to arrive. Am I insane? Maybe. Am I obsessed with my horse? Definitely.
