#JumperNation Candid Camera: Face to Face

Your life. Your photos.

While the show ring has a life of its own, there’s just as much if not more going on behind the scenes: moments of heartfelt (or hilarious!) interaction between horses and riders, back-at-the-barn antics, the buzz of an in-gate pep talk, the moments that remind us that we do this thing for reasons much more than ribbons.

Each week we comb Instagram for photos we think captured “the moment,” whatever that moment may be, perfectly. This week’s theme: face to face.
