The Royal Cornwall - Show Jumping
 
Something else I had never attended in my sheltered life as a towny was a County Show.  The Royal Cornwall Show was a revelation to me with every conceivable aspect of country life on display.  But the first thing that caught my eye was the Show Jumping - here, in the flesh, was everything I had seen when watching it on television.  And what flesh it was, every sinue and muscle of those beautiful horses showing as they jumped with what appeared to me to be with consumate ease.  The riders and the horses were one, both showing intense concentration.  Here indeed was a subject for my lens!  I'll put up a second gallery of the other events and people that caught my lens at the show later.
