"Isn't anyone else concerned with this?!?" I plead. Maybe I'm wrong. Or just nit picking. Then along comes a barely 21 year old girl driving her lovely pony in the Welsh countryside. And my hope is restored.
Meet Emily Ham and Jack [Crossfield Glory], a Section C Welsh stud. I know Ms. Ham and Jack only through the wonders of the internet, so it seems fair that I make full disclosure that I am operating on two possible theories of truth. The first being that Ms. Ham has studied very astutely in her brief career on the box seat to be the best whip she can possibly be and that the Crossfield Stud has spent years developing a breeding program that has produced more than one superfly pony. The other theory is that both Ms. Ham and Jack are freaks of nature, bestowed, by the Gods, with talent and ability found in less than 3% of the population, to thwart the rest of us. Make your own assumptions...
Reinsmanship: Cadence And Extension by Emily Ham and Crossfield Glory
When I complimented Ms. Ham on her driving, she answered by saying she was lucky to have such an amazing pony. Grace and humility. Freak of Nature? I think: Not. There is nothing not to love about this gifted young woman and her pony. This is the standard we should all endeavor to achieve.
Lastly, thank you to Ann Ham for the photos, and for her continued belief and support of her daughter and Jack's career as an example to us all.
