GH, finally a test that Walka would excel at! LOL!

Spyder, while very entertaining, I'm exhausted just watching! Have to give the gentleman kudos for being in such great shape! Loved the comparison of the horse performing while the man did; the horse made it look sooooo easy!

Thanks to both for my giggle today!

That test is brilliant, pretty sure me and Lottie have done something similar

Seconding what walkamile said, I used to try and learn tests by running them, and a working trot around half the arena is enough to get me out of breath!

I know. But you can always recruit others to help you.
