About the Work
My first outing on a horse at a riding school was disastrous! I would have been eleven, and I was too scared to admit never having been on a horse before. We set out, and before long came to a broad, long, flat track. "Aha!" said the horse, and let rip. I clung on for dear life – soon to be joined by the instructor who promptly put me on a leading rein. This picture has all the elements of the thundering lunges I survived.
