From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:20 pm on 1 May 2014

Imagine the skills and training needed to be a competitive showjumper - and then deciding to do it... on a horse with no saddle or bridle.

The Dunedin resident now has tens of thousands of followers around the world following a viral video of her jumping barriers nearly two metres high, bareback on her horse Goldrush.
