The final frame of the series .
She leaves the ring empowered by her experience.
Now she knows . She is a force of nature and like the circus creatures taken from the wild who are tamed to amuse and work for the master , the power of the wild remains strong ,however dormant , suppressed or seemingly overwhelmed by controlling regimes like that of the ringmaster in the ring. She wears the clothes of a ringmaster , now she is in charge .. of her life and her environment . She is one with the horse she rides whom she treats as an equal .
