But add to that "jumping 3' solid fences" the occasional 4'. And most of the fences by this time of the year are muddy on take off and landing and there is the occasional peck, stumble or slide by the horse.
And those trees that are on the landing side...the horse can't decide to pass on the left or the right and changes his mind at the last minute; three strides from the coop.
Not good for the extreme forward position.
If we do not wish to lose our freedom, we must learn to tolerate our
neighbor's right to freedom even though he might express that freedom
in a manner we consider to be eccentric.
