Laurel actually sent us two photos but to keep in the spirit of this feature I have chosen my favourite of the two this one which is a fantastic action shot.
Laurel says of her photo: “I am a reader from way down in South Australia, home of the Australian International 3 Day Event. Here is a pic of Australian Team members and team silver medalists from 2008 Kirby Park Irish Jester & Megan Jones. The photo is of them at the 2011 event tearing it up on cross country. Irish Jester was retired this past year at the 2012 Event still looking fit and happy and even taking a few cross country jumps in the main ring. Very happy that I was able to see them compete for the last time in Adelaide. Very cool team!”
