  1. What fun GIFS- love them all! Pickford missing the horse’s rump and crashing onto the barn floor was particularly painful to watch for this rider. Can feel that landing in my back jeans pocket- ow, ow, ow!! I’m sure some padding and a careful feet-first landing was used by the stunt double. Big lasting ouchie complete with rainbow bruising if that gag’s not set up right!
