    Default Bareback Puissance at 6'2"

    This person is an eventer, but this picture might interest those in the H/J forum. I just wish they had a video.

    I wouldn't canter down to that even WITH a saddle!

    nicely done.

    Admittedly, I am a weenie when it comes to jumping without stirrups, much less bareback. Exactly how does one stay ON, particularly on landing from that height????

    Yeah, my horse would take one look at this wall and say "Not in this lifetime are we jumping THAT."

    There is a series of still photos in the thread on the eventing forum about the puissance. In every picture the rider (Jennie Brannigan) is in beautiful balance with her shoulders over her knees and her legs firmly in the right place. You could take the horse away and she would land still balanced over her feet.

    It's some of the best riding I've seen lately.
