The Private Passion of Jackie Kennedy Onassis

Some of the most iconic photos out of the millions of photos taken of Jacqueline Kennedy are on horseback. 

 An avid equestrian from the time she could walk, Jacqueline Onassis seems most content in the company of horses.  Vicky Moon collected hundreds of these photos in The Private Passion of Jackie Kennedy Onassis.   The book features photos that are widely known and many that have rarely been seen.

This 1961 photo of a tumble is one of the most reproduced.  No wonder she hated paparazzi!

Actually, wrote a foreword to James L. Young’s A Field of Horses: The World of Marshall P. Hawkins.  Hawkins was the equestrian photographer who took this famous picture of her falling head first when her horse balked at a jump.
