Somewhere I saw a documentary or something of a horse & rider team that did it. But it was from the tops of reallyyyy high buildings.. It seemed like it was a girl and a white horse? I don't know.. maybe its that movie yall are talking about?

One thing I've learned working with horses: You can FORCE a horse to do something on a tight rein and he might do what you ask or you can TEACH a horse to do something on a loose rein and he will do it willingly with his heart.

In the movie, she initially rode a chestnut, if I remember correctly, and then later a grey. She didn't jump off buildings, but very, very high ramps built for the purpose.

Some footage from the movie:

I was going to say the same thing. I think it's animal abuse myself. Think of how the horse must have felt when he was first asked to do this useless act. Think of what they must have done to force to do it as well. Absolutely ridiculous that people like that would do it, even more so that people would go and sit in the middle of a deserted forest watch a poor animal into a pool. The human population is absolutely ridiculous.

I just watched that on youtube the other night...I love that movie

Indy, in the movie, sonora rides the grey right away, and she rode the chestnut after her main horse got sick.

"The ideal horseman has the courage of a lion, the patience of a saint, and the hands of a woman..."
