That was awesome! I was just holding my breath!

Yes , the horses are amazing, but don't forget the rider. Watch at how extreme their position can be and they still have steady hands and never lose a stirrup. Their strength and skill is jaw dropping.

No wonder they all have to have their joints injected after a few years of this stuff!
Yeah, I thought the same thing. I watched a video like this not long ago and it was shocking because it looked like they were gonna break their fetlocks every time they landed It's just something you don't really notice at "normal speed".

Especially since some of those riders end up in positions that are just jaw dropping. Amazing that they don't come out of the saddle.

And yet I cannot argue with what those riders can do.
