Hunter Jumper


Hunter Jumper by Ruth Soller, oil on linen, 20x16

 

 

 

This paint hunter jumper horse competed in the Western Stock Show in January. I was attracted to the dramatic coloring of the horse as well as its power and grace. Horse and rider were confident and poised in their relationship of trust  and interdependence.

 

What is your favorite event at the Western Stock Show? What did you learn by participating in or watching the event?
