This week's Missed It! Mondays victim, Samantha Johnson, sent us this amazing photo from Princeton Show Jumping (N.J.) taken during her first ever low junior jumper class on Campol.
"I decided to take a risky inside turn to the last fence, and the distance was so bad that he halted," said Johnson. "I went to circle, but being the saint that he is, he jumped it from a standstill and left it standing! I fell within two feet of the timers (please note the flying stirrup). Everyone was fine, thankfully, and he got lots of treats for putting up with me."
