Goofs

When Betty talks to Jimmy Barrett at the dinner conversation about her horse riding, she mentions that she doesn't do dressage but rather jumping. At some previous scene at the tables where we can see her in the saddle, the saddle type and the stirrup length both are clearly for dressage, not for jumping. See more »
