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.


To rein a horse is not only to guide him,
but also to control his every movement.

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?

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

Ride more, worry less.

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.
