Cool! Thanks for sharing.
More than anything this exemplifies the incredible heart and try that the horse has in this partnership. That stands out #1 seeing this!
... Reminds me of my safari in Africa. Somebody forgot the corkscrew and for several days we had to live on nothing but food and water. W. C. Fields
They also did a video of the show jumping in the London Olympics. It's so cool to see it slowed down, but also a bit scary when you see the amount of force on the horses legs.
Breathtaking! Thanks for posting.
I'm going to show this to my mom so she will never again complain about the small jumps I do (that she thinks are big)
Makes me appreciate how clever-footed and brave these horses are.
