    For the Jumpers


    I really only posted this video because of the very last clip of Richard Spooner at 7:52 in. You guys have to see this. Where most of us would have jumped ship and prayed for the best... he manages to not only stay on, but keep out of the horses way, AND continue on riding. Amazing.

    Okay, the whole thing was awesome, but that last clip of Richard Spooner was truly awe-inspiring! Excuse me while I try to locate my jaw...I'm pretty sure it's lying someone on the floor!

    Wow, now that is talent. I've seen people loose the reins and continue on, but never decide it was better to let the horse decide how to recover by throwing the reins away. I would have never had the courage to do that.

    There must be some extrodinary amount of trust built between that horse and rider! Awe-inspiring!! Thanks for sharing!

    That's incredible! I've been to Spruce Meadows many times and have seen some truly extrordinary (sp?) performances but nothing compares to that last clip!
