Caroline's brother bets everything on her next race, hoping his winnings will cover his other gambling debts. Caroline knows Amelia is the best racer at Miss Blake’s Riding Academy, but kind-hearted Amelia agrees to let Caroline win this one. They fool the race officials, but they can’t fool Miss Blake.
When Miss Blake confronts the girls, they confess all. She agrees not to expel them, but they still must be punished. The crying girls hold each other’s hands, tearfully comforting each other as they each receive a harsh whipping from Miss Blake's riding crop.
This was such a hot scene. Amelia and Caroline both became deeply immersed in character as the good girls who hadn’t meant to get each other in trouble. Their emotional reactions lent a real intensity to the punishment as they tried to protect each other, held hands and counted each other’s strokes. The girl getting whipped tried her utmost to be brave, but both times the one watching cried real tears as they empathised with the suffering of their friend.
These ladies are both amazing actresses. I almost couldn’t bring myself to thrash them ... almost.
The emotional intensity of this scene appealed to all of us on set, and we were on a collective high when we finished filming. Caroline and Amelia both cited this as their favourite scene of the two-day shoot.
Amelia's husband Hywel captured the beauty and drama of their whippings in a series of truly gorgeous photographs. I love Hywel's work; it's always a pleasure to shoot with him. There are so many lovely images from this 100-photo gallery that I found it hard to pick my favourites. But this post shows you a few of them. I think that the genuine tears in Amelia's eyes as she watches Caroline's punishment, and the beautifully vivid welts decorating pale-skinned Caroline's bottom make for some stunning - and timeless - spanking photography.
