as i recall, the year before last and the rider was arrested for holding it underwater near the bridge, i believe i have a near identical frame
some background info would help ???
What are we seeing,a drownding horse....????...JT
The guy who went into the water with the horse got in too deep and got them both into a struggle, nearly drowned himself and the horse luckily he let go and both him and the horse survived yet he was then in deep water with the police.
A very disturbing image, but glad to hear the horse made it out of the water. Couldn't care less about the rider, what a total idiot. Carol
Didn't realise the horse was in trouble , what's really going on here , I agree with carol Quote: A very disturbing image, but glad to hear the horse made it out of the water. Carol
How on earth could you just stand there and take a photograph of this atrocity, I cannot believe it. Carol

it wasnt like that, it was at appleby and the horses were being washed and ridden in he river, with all the people and horses you just follow the action and keep firing, it was only when he got into trouble that anyone could see that it wasnt just normal spashing about (which most of the horses really love.
i havnt seen any real illtreatment of the horses by the gypsies and most are treated with reverance but some of the young bloods get a little overexcited
Thanks for the explanation, Phil, but I do feel that the image was not an ideal choice for upload to ePZ. Carol
I'd kind of agree with the sentiments but isn't presenting people with 'challenging' and thought-provoking images what photography is often about. I'd prefer to see this, with the explanation that the horse ended up safe, than the numerous shots of americans torturing large mammals and calling it 'sport' (i.e. rodeo).
