Peggy Lockett looked pretty enough to please almost everybody at the start of the cross-country event in a one-day trial near Middleburg, Va. To please everybody, that is, but her borrowed mount, Tamer. Coming up to the third obstacle, Tamer, a perfectionist but no gentleman, ducked his head and sent Peggy arrowing straight into a free facial, with the result pictured above. Peggy, by now something of a perfectionist herself, wiped off her mudpack, pulled herself together, remounted Tamer and sent him over the jump in proper form.
