    Is This Unreal? Or normal?

    So I was looking at this video, and to me, this is just amazing! I mean, I know the horse kicks out a few times, but those jumps....

    of course, I am a western rider, so I have no idea. I was wondering though, are lots of the professional or higher up courses like this?

    Wow. Talk about amazing though.

    Wow, that was an amazing course! Thanks for posting it!

    That was awesome!

    Oh and the kicking out looks like it came from the lead changes.

    It's a Derby course. They have one at the jump club where I ride. They aren't too popular, the horses have to be beyond fit to ride them, they are usually over 20 obstacles long, including mounds and liverpools. But yeah that course looks amazing, I wonder what the height of it was?

    Yea, that is real!!! Isnt it so cool to watch! I agree w/ Supermane that the kicks where b/c of the lead changes. What a cool horse!

    Yeah, I noticed he kicks after the lead changes as well. :) I've seen it before, it's a really awesome course!

    Great course! Yes some horses kick out when they do a lead change, and others give a few playful kicks or bucks because they are having a good time and jumping is easy for them...Cumano often does this, but the problem is that bucking and kicking out is time consuming and often lands you with time faults.

    Well this particular horse looks like he's in a good mood lol
    The kicks are after the lead changes...but that one kick looked like it was just the horse playing around haha

    Wow what athletes!!!!!
