Show Jumpers in Slow Motion

I thought this was so cool to really see the movement and power of Olympic show jumpers.

I'm not an English rider, but that was pretty awesome! I also noticed at the end, they spelled 'amazing' and 'animals' wrong! haha!

I saw this a couple days ago and the things that i noticed right away was the strain and the shock that is put on their joints. I've been jumping horses for years... but i've never really been able to see just how much goes into the body mechanics necessary for the act of jumping. No wonder they all have to have their joints injected after a few years of this stuff!

That is amazing. I found it interesting how some horses you could really see release in the back end at take off, whereas others it seemed effortless.

On that note, I couldn't get my eyes off how low some of their fetlocks were going.

Wow, just look at the power in those back ends!! I agree with the pressure on the joints comment, once I noticed it, that's all I looked at. Shocking really, not something you consciously think about

Absolutely amazing. Such powerful creatures...just, horses. That's all I've got.

And you know what? The Pirates of the Caribbean theme song total made the video just a bit more epic. XD
