That was a pretty hard fall for horse and rider in the first scene!

I love the solution that horse had for that coop at 12:12. Why jump it when you can hop on and off it?

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I think that when they fall of and get back on, wihout knowing if the horse is injured is harsh.

I don't think they care if the horse or rider in injured unseriously. Probably only matters if either of them can't function. But very cool videos!

It's a fascinating facebook page. Denny Emerson posts tons of old pics daily, often thinking out loud with them. I'm not much into jumping but I find his posts a true treat. Look forward to them daily.

It is interesting to see all the rather flat movement out of the olympic level dressage horses. Would those same performances be considered as good these days? It has been said so many times you MUST have a warmblood to preform at the higher levels now days.

I must say that just because my horses can do something, I often think I wouldn't ask them to. To do this level to me is to risk your horses life every time. Call me a wimp but I simply don't wish to do it. A broken leg or neck isn't worth it to me. It certainly is interesting to watch though sometimes I do it through closed eyes.

Thank God the styles of clothing and hair changed since then. The 70's were the absolute worst as far as fashion. ha ha
