My daughter has participated in equestrian show jumping for many years. She is a great example to me of the motto “get over it”. This piece was to be an allegory of how to approach life- give everything you have when you approach any obstacle eventhough you may not be certain of what lies on the other side.

Tim, that is really nice.

Nice project. Great contrast with the natural wood and painted rider. What wood is the horse?
