    Agreed. I am not in that circle. Each to their own. Just my opinion is all. I still beleive that there is too much added danger that is not necessary, but go for it and the almighty dollar ;)

    Again, same can be said about any sport. And any discipline in the Equine world.

    Their passion, their love, their carreers. Their choices. Their time, their money, their efforts.

    On a lighter note, I commend all of the athletes (horses and riders) who jump. All I was trying to get across is that there is alot of added danger that is only there for the wow factor. Not pointing fingers at these athletes, maybe the owners or the money people that want to make it more and more breathtaking to draw more and more money. I have seen a few wrecks that could have been avoided had there just been the jump and not the pits etc... Please accept my appology if I came off as dogging the athletes. I did not mean to come off that way.

Why would you expose you and your beautiful animal to such a potentially deadly accident???
    Well the birck walls are made outta carboard.........

    I think as the maddens were saying you have to make sure that YOUR horse is right for the bigger jumps and can handle them.

    I know the walls are usually made of cardboard. I was talking about the moats and pits etc before and after the walls. Anyway, I will stay out of this as it is not my forte and again I didn't mean to offend. Only voicing my opinion. That is what happens in a forum, isn't it??

    I mean, if you can do it and your horse can... do it! Haha.
    I'd be SO scared. I'd probably scream before we got the jump .. xD

    I just don't see how anybody could bring themselves to steer towards a jump that big and follow through with it.
