One of my favorite “Oh Crap” moments of all time is this one, of Canadian eventer Jessica Phoenix during the 2010 World Equestrian Games at the Kentucky Horse Park.
Jessica Phoenix IS eventing. Her numerous accolades aside, I will never forget glancing up at the jumbotron during the 2010 WEGs just in time to see Jessica and Exponential dive off the bounce bank at the Head of the Lake and disappear in a giant, terrible splash only to rise, yes, Phoenix-like, from their watery ashes and kick on to the next jump. It was, without a doubt, the most eventing-est thing I’ve ever seen in my life.
Good luck this weekend at Rolex, Jessica and Exponential!
