WOW that is one heck of a horse! He continued on to the next jump by himself with his rider only hanging on to his mane!

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.

One Lucky rider and one incredible horse. The poor horse continued on by himself despite the fact she was in the process of falling off. Good guy!

That was a very good horse. But even he could'nt save her. Look at the very end of the video. Her leg comes back and I think she went off.

That is a really good horse. He has got heart to spare, most horses would have refused the following jumps after a near disaster like that. Especially after rapping his front legs like that. I am not sure whether it was his fitness or his ability that caused the initial problem but he handled it very well.

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/
