    When I noticed he lost his stirrup it was back on before the next jump, but mostly you can tell he is absorbing most of the impact in his legs using the stirrups.

    He just lands on that horse so hard. And flies so high in the air.

    Ok I looked at a lot of the comments and some said its a polo player that traded places with his jumping buddy for the day as a bet he could jump a clear round. But still. After the first couple of jumps he goes 5 feet in the air and lands hard it'd be like ok you're right it's hard.

    That horse is quite the little trooper! When I saw the first jump, I thought he just had a bad jump (although he had no reason to) and then after watching the others I realized that was the way he jumped! The horse is hesitating right before the jump, probably thinking 'dear god not again'

    Lol the horse is a pre Andalusian. I can imagine him cussing each time he lands

    I kinda think it takes some sort of talent to stay on and yet look so terrible. Haha.

    Agreed, kudos to the horse for putting up with it. I think I would have dumped his sorry behind after 2 horrid fences!

    Bet or dare or whatever, that horse is an absolute saint for tolerating that through a whole course and only balking on that one fence.

    I don't know who the rider was, but I would like to reach through the screen and throttle him for whipping the horse to that one jump the second time they took it. I'm fairly certain that the horse wouldn't have balked if the rider hadn't been jumping and landing so horribly.

    I am shocked that anyone would do that to their horse whether for a bet or dare or whatever. They were risking the health of their horse for what? A horse can easy enough be injured doing that much less with a rider that is slamming down onto his neck so many times as he jumps. Not to mention, it would be fair if the horse began hesitating at jumps after such a horrid and uncomfortable ride. Just plain stupid. I too think the stewards or someone should have stopped him.
