I am 99% certain my horse could pass that test with a little practice and the right rider. However, right now in my riding career, I am not that rider. :)

That looks like so much fun, I could just see Cinny plowing through everything! ha ha. My QH probably could have done it though she lived for that kind of stuff.

That is truly amazing! I would fail but would most likely have fun trying. The thing I like the most is the horses attitude throughout, he is waiting to be told what to do and is responsive in a split second, also smart enough to put each foot exactly in the right spot so as not to knock any of the obstacles, poetry in motion.

All horses deserve, at least once in their lives, to be loved by a little girl.

Riley could do all of that... only, not sure about the jump and not sure how pretty it would be!!!

That was really neat.

Spyder, I could be wrong, but that looks like a bullfighting horse.

If it is, then they have to be able to perform all those maneuvers at a fast pace.

Stunning horse and excellent horsemanship. Both rider and horse are in complete synchronicity.

My Arab could that. At warp speed, and not with any real finesse or in any particular order, though! Oh, and he'd knock down those flower baskets.

So I guess I'm saying no, neither I nor my horse could pass that test.

I really liked that! That takes some SERIOUS skill! My first horse would have LOVED to do something like that.
