When I showed this picture I got two reactions. From horsey people it was, “Beautiful Friesian”. From non-horsey people it was, “Oh my God did his foot get stepped on?”
When you look at the shot more closely and not knowing that the handler is guiding the horse through the corner, it really does look like a man throwing up his arm in agony.
To the latter group I usually respond, “Oh yes, happens all the time”. *wink*
