Glad that was before my time! Nice horse, good rider too.
Sometimes you have to burn a few bridges to keep the crazies from following you!
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.

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
