Glad that was before my time! Nice horse, good rider too.
Back in my day, we didn't have as many warning labels because people weren't so dang stupid!
that was also in the day for the show horse when a gait change took place the horse had one step to complete the change...
Holy cow! Not much room for error there.
Is that possibly a stallion performance test? Just from the appearance of the onlookers and the way the situation is set up.

In theory, yes, but the difference between theory and reality is that, in theory, there is no difference between theory and reality but, in reality, there is a difference.
Rue would so jump that. "Ditch, mum? Okay!" and over we go.

LOL!!!! Especially HH's comment!
We do something somewhat similar at Paso Fino shows. But the "plank" is firmly on the ground. And a tad bit wider. And at the slow gait, not the fast gait.

I think it shows that horses have a very, very good idea of where all their feet are at any given time. No doubt this was not his first time over.

Hmmmm I am so tempted to build a raised plank this weekend. Mush ground makes it hard to do much real riding anyway. Wouldn't be quite the same as crossing a big ditch, of course
