I am not saying that is wrong, but it is far from clear to me what Jackie does frequently and what was a rare event -- part of growing up. I did many things as a child for short periods of time which have survived in pictures, but I certainly didn't do them regularly. Some things like horseback riding and archery only have appeared a few times for Jackie, so it doesn't mean to me that she does them frequently. Other things like drawing (and singing ) we have seen many times, so I think that I would be safe in assuming that she does them regularly.
The photo I was referring to shows me that Jackie has either been taking English riding lessons or the photo was staged. I doubt the latter, but I don't discount the possibility. But, whoever dressed Jackie up in the appropriate riding attire and seated her in proper position with knee bent correctly and foot position in the stirrup at the right angle knew what he/she was doing. Also the horse was properly tacked with an English saddle and bridle and was well groomed with an English style shave (like dogs are shaved for shows) The question then is.....why? This not a photo of Jackie simply horseback riding. No matter really. Just an educated observation. I should not have referred to Jackie as an "equestrian", probably misleading. It's a common term for those who do more than casual riding.
