7 foot wall!
 
I don't jump. I stand in awe when I watch stuff like this.
It said a 7 foot wall in the notes. The Puissance?

I have seen the 7ft wall years ago in competition. Amazing huh?

I think I've seen this before; but that's amazing... and pretty scary to think what it's like!

On a side note: I'd hate to try and keep a horse like that behind the pasture fence :lol:

I was competing at King's Mill when a rider won TWO BMW cars. One for winning the P class, and the top of the line BMW for matching the record. She attempted to break the record but dropped some blocks. But, hey....who could argue with two fancy cars??

That is pretty amazing, but all I can watch is all that weight coming down on their front two feet, and how with such a height how akward it is for them. Just waiting for one of those little legs to snap!

It does creep me out watching that , too.

I just can't see any good in this at all. Why? Just why?

I like the bareback Puissance. It can seperate the men from the boys!! LOL! It is not unknown for some male riders to show up bare....as in BARE!!

There is a hysterical youtube video of a French Grand prix rider..uh...jumping BAREback. If this thread was in the saloon, I would post the link.
