Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith made ESPN Magazine‘s 2012 “Bodies We Want” list. HN is a super-classy, G-rated family website, you know, so we’re just going to hook you up with a link. A big thanks to Ali Smallpage over at EN for the find!
Smith isn’t the first jockey to bare it all for the press. In March of this year, female jockey Chantal Sutherland posed in the nude on a horse for Vanity Fair. The story was called “Filly Cheesecake” (we’re not kidding), and it includes the line, “Her position in the saddle is positively feline, very sensual, and when she makes her move to take the lead, she gets impossibly low on her horse’s back.” Hmmm. Anyway, here’s your link.
Would you like some naked show-jumping to go with your naked jockeys? As the story goes, this video is from a show-jumping competition in Bourg-en-Bresse, France. From YouTube, “The show was supposed to be a costumed show, but rider D. Ribot did not have a costume ready. He informed the jury about that, and they told him (as a joke) that he should just compete naked. Which he ultimately did… Quite impressive, enjoy!”
