Hated seeing the horse tied that low in the stall. I too figured someone was squatted down out of view holding him.
When the two horses were tied to the tree while the stars were talking, the chestnut was bugging the other horse, and came untied right before the camera angle changed.
A dressage barn made more sense: her riding outfit, dressage horses on the rosettes, letters on the ring fence, and dressage saddles in the tackroom.
There was one shot taken from under the jump where Patrick (Rascal) either spooked, slammed on the brakes, or just scrambled before “jumping”. I audibly gasped waiting for a crash, but instead, they just cut to another shot. Some wild footwork!
And yes, her hands drove me crazy.
