    Now that one does scare me. I remember watching the course walk and hearing that they'd parked a Land Rover Discovery in the ditch.

    Eventing cross country jumps look so scary, but when you are jumping, they don't seem but one more jump out there, to the horses and competitors.

    That one really looks a bit extreme and I don't know how that pair fared.
    They seem to be getting some height, but do they have the scope to clear that?

    That is a tricky looking take-off and the landing looks like it would be very jarring.

    Here's a link to the video (from the eventing forum). It's not a good view of the jump, but the time they spend in the air gives you a good idea of how big it is.

    Oh hell noooo!!! I don't have the cojones, skill, or athleticism to pull that off, EVER!!! I like little sticks that fall down when hit. And no ditches or drops.
