HAHA! I remember seeing this on Animal Planet :) Super cute! While not a 'natural jumper' the cow does pretty well!

There are a couple of girls in Germany who, when their parents said "no horses" took to cows instead!

Yes, the last one I heard about rode a Friesian dairy steer (the black-and-white tall breed). This breed has longer legs and probably does better at jumping. In fact, we have nine such steers here, all 18 months old, and they show an incredible predisposition for jumping or climbing over any fences that don't have >8.0kV of electricity running through them. But I'm not planning on riding any of them.

I've seen that before and it's really cute. She's done a nice job on that heifer.

What I wonder about though is what the "canter" feels like. Cows do not canter like horses, with a set lead. Cows naturally crossfire so I imagine it would make sharp turns difficult with a rider.

You would think some German trainer might take this girl on!

Don't ever try this bareback!! I used to jump on grandpa's cows when he wasn't looking- ouch!!!!

Thanks for posting this! A couple of my lesson students were asking what it's like to ride a cow last night!
