    Yes, they are still my all time favorite jumper combination. I idolized KK and saw her compete many times on all of the horses in those videos. One of my most treasured possessions is the picture postcard of her and Untouchable that she autographed for me in the ladies room of the old MSG more than 45 years ago. It sits right in the wall unit in my living room.

    You can take a line and say it isn't straight- but that won't change its shape. Jets to Brazil

    Lovely. Untouchable was an amazing (TB) athlete! Kathy Kusner was a tremendous rider and one who broke alot of barriers socially as well.

    cool. great vid's. Actually went to mexico city and tried horses in *that* warm up area last year. Funny because in stills, what a horse. In video, Fleet Apple (from our own Kay Love and Bill Herring in Az) looked a much easier ride.

    Am picking up a couple of tb jumper prospects this week. another untouchable? fleet apple? snowbound? don't know til I try...

    Very cool footage. The no helmet stuff is hilarious. I too remember KK when I was a kid and idolized her.
