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
