So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I really liked the second video that you posted of Joe Fargis, Maura. Now I know what "really good" looks like in the jumper ring. There's no mistaking it.

BarefootBugsy, that was so neat! Great horsemanship for sure.

What I especially love about that video is that I often here the European style of showjumping - full seat, riding 'backwards' to the fence - as necessary when riding in cramped quarters indoors with a lot of technical distances. If you reference an American forward seat someone is bound to say it's only appropriate on a derby style course with big, open distances.

Yet here's Joe Fargis, riding forward to his fences in two or three point with the horse's head and neck stretched forwad - indoors.
