Is this not amazing?

Tell me if you don't think this is amazing or not

A man. Bareback. On a high-withered horse. Showjumping. A good 5-6 feet? Poor guy.

Don't the horse's legs bow kinda funny?


Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

Now THAT takes some riding ability. Holy crap!!! That guy is good. As for the legs bowing funny.....do you mean when they bend back at the knee when they land?

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Very cool! (but ouch)

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

No, his pastern/fetlock area just.... Bows. O.o Bends under the force of him landing.
