To the two who are concerned, this happens about once a year and these horses are top athletes. If puissance was really detrimental to them, it would not occur.

Yes, the horses would have to be in tip top shape to be able to do that. The riders for that matter as well.

It's amazing that the horses are even willing to attempt to jump something that height.

I went to Puissance couple times (at WIHS). Impressive! Some horses look like climbing over that wall like a cat.

:o that's crazy!

I know my BO won a puissance many many years ago, but it definitely wasn't 7ft.

I've seen this at WIHS. Love it. And to the rider who kept the leg and near perfect form bareback.... I bow down to you. Freaking amazing.

If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question or asked the question wrong

And God took a handful of southerly wind, blew His breath over it and created the horse

There's a puissance class in a local schooling show/fundraiser coming up xD THAT will be an epic fail! xD
