Second round of the show jumping

This was Jezebel's first show, a small country show with a ferris wheel, lots of stalls and everything from pony and carriages to several thousand people thronging the showground.
Phil hadn't prepared her very well, he'd popped her over a couple of showjumps at home but she'd never seen "proper" jumps much less a course!
She trotted round the first time knocking a few down as her eyes were everywhere but the jumps, but second time round at 2' 3 "/2'6" she suddenly clicked she was supposed to jump, and boy did she ...
My daughter tried her at home a few days later over some much bigger fences and there was no doubt she would have been eventing in 2009.
