London Olympics 2012: Modern Pentathlon show jumping - in pictures

London Olympics 2012: Modern Pentathlon Showjumping in Pictures... this makes me laugh a bit

Footballers really do get under my skin. Get thrown from a horse onto hard ground or worse. While you have a time out for bruising your knee, us horse riders will get back on despite being in pain, and we never make a fuss!

British Olympian Charlotte Dujardis and Valegro made history today by becoming Great Britain's first individual gold medalist in dressage, adding to her team gold medal... and to think, she only began riding Grand Prix in 2011! Love this joyful photo and love that helmet on her head! #Olympics #equestrian

Equine photography tips. Expression – Focus on the eyes & nose that show the most emotion. Ensure the horses ears are pricked forward, Throw something small into the air or make a noise to grab their attention. Angle – Low angle is often best for action shots and silhouettes. But with portraits keep the camera level with the eyes of the horse or rider, this will give them both a more flattering appearance.
