Very cool, but what's really sad is the fact that after 1 entire year of french, I only understood one word of all that and it was "Oui!" Even though I figured the sentence leading up to that word was something along the lines of "Is he going to do/clear/make it?"

So, here we go. Pardon my awfully rusty French as well and by no means should you take this very accurately, but I'll do my best
I'll see if I can get a hold of a French forum user and pretty please him / her to take a look at the video.

"[ finishing some sentence]..Leonardo, here it's about the official world record , the best was 2 meters 35 cm. Frank Sloothaak calms down his horse [...skipped few words I didnt understand], you will see, he will start with canter on the left hand / lead, and immediately before he will change on gallop on the right hand / lead, and here is the jump on the wall, for 2.35meters"

They jump, crowd cheering

"No mistake, the world record was reached. Let's see again in slow-motion . Superb jump. 2m 35 cm. But he is not the only contender in this. The public waited impatiently for this wonderful rider to appear, Marcos (spelling?)..who also jumped the same height, despite the small fault he had.
So it's Frank Sloothak who wins."

Second video sequence

I understood an average of 5 words out of 12 so I'll just resume the stuff I figured out.
They introduce again Frank Sloothak trying for 2meters 40 cm this time. And mention that he was a bit upset, also mentioning he stated something about some lack of seriousness of making him wait so long.
Then he comments on how concentrated he rider is and about the pressure, not only for the financial gains (1 million francs) but also the record itself.
They cheer with a "YES" - the Oui part :) - . The world record has been broken! "And with how much ease!"
When replaying in slow-motion, he says "Look well at these images, they're worth 1 million francs" , along with priceless memories for all the spectators.

"Here is Frank Sloothaak, looking at the wall, fixing well his goal, he adjusting the canter's rythm, he allows his horse to (...goddam ,no idea what the next 4 words mean), he is joining the horse perfectly in its movement, elastic and controlled, his leg is tensing and now the horse is jumping; He only touched the wall a very little bit. "

That's about all I understood from the video

Let's ask our French buddies from horseforum to give us a hand.

Les amis francais, voulez-vous nous aider?

On some occasions great puissance horses couldn't navigate the twists and turns of a GP course to save their lives.

Sorry it's Narcos, not Marcos.
The horse Narcos and Eric Navet were the other contenders for the 2.35 jump

Not sure how much is that in feet.

2.40 meters is 7 feet 10 inches. So 2.35 meters is 7 feet 8 inches (roughly).

Wait, the record breaking jump in this video is 2.40 meters? I thought the world record was held by a horse named Huaso for going 2.47 back in the 40's some time. Or are we not talking about world record? Am I wrong?
