Thibaut Vallette of France and his horse jumped on a cross-country course in the eventing competition at the #Olympic Equestrian Center in Brazil. Eventing is essentially the equestrian version of a triathlon, except that its 3 parts — dressage, cross-country and show jumping — take place over multiple days. Medals will be awarded tomorrow after show jumping, Part 3. The photographer @mjrhill, who is #ReportingFromRio for @nytimessports, took this picture earlier today.
