Photo # 78 & Question # 345: Kayla shows us a sequence of photos and has a question about her horse's tendency to sometimes markedly drift to one side right before the jump.

But there is something that I also want to mention that shows up in this series of photos.... (Click on Photo/Question Title above to read the full answer and critique of these photos.)
