Show me one horse that was *asked politely* to do everything they've ever been trained at. Don't kid yourself- some of Americas training methods are probably worse than theirs.

My mouth was hanging open in awe this entire video. Wow!

****, that horse could walk around all day on his hind legs. That's some serious self-carriage!! That half pass down the rail made my jaw fall on the floor. Somehow I think that test would go very differently on my sometimes strung out TB. Thanks for posting. I don't think I've ever seen a video like that.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

My gelding would have said "there is no way im doing this" the second i pointed him at that bridge/ramp. As far as Eggo is concerned, bridges are for walking, you can never be too careful when looking for trolls under bridges.
