Wow the things people will do for a little fame and probably money. I don't agree at all with people who lose sight of the importance of the horse and rider as a team and all they see is dollar signs and fame, its disgusting.

Unbelievable, that landing must have been VERY hard on that poor animal.

Those people might not be the loving horse owners you all are. They might even be the type of people who don't have any issues with hurting other people let alone animals. So is it possible that they pushed their animals past their limits and put the animal's life in danger? YOU BET! In that day and age it wasn't uncommon. Back then there wasn't as many animal protection laws either. It's sad but things like that happened.

All of this depends on how experienced the rider is and if the horse is up to these heights. I have seen a horse jump 9foot like it was a crossrail. So I don't think most of the people are seeing the entire picture(s). They don't see the training,and the care the horses get afterward. Sometimes people don't have to push their horses over a 7 foot fence they just glide over it because they can.

Than how come they aren't the World Record holder? Ha

Really, no matter how much training they get, it's still going to be hard on their joints.

IDK y they aren't the record holder but its a beautiful picture.
Any athlete in a top sport is going to have wear and tear. But if you take care of them they won't break down. I don't think its abuse if you know what ur doing and the horse is happy to do it. The management of the sporthorse is a very difficult thing.

I'm sure you have seen a horse jump nine foot. Not.

Good care obviously helps, but it still is VERY hard on horses joints. The horse can "glide" over the jumps, but it' still a 1,000+lb animal landing on thin legs from 7 feet.
