    Default Pentathlon jumping

    I am watching todays pentathlon jumpers and was noticing a big improvement in riding from the last olympics, until the Korean rider.......

    http://www.nbcolympics.com/liveextra/vi ... ent-medals

    His ride starts at about 1:30.25.

    Not only does he have a death grip on the horse but actually pulls him over onto himself during a rear. Then they go on to ride that course. Not even a vet check on a horse that just flipped over. Dang if that were my horse that was borrowed I would be having a fit!!!!

    I realize that the riders only have 20 min to get to know their horse but !!!! This horse's first go round was just fine.

    Sadly, cannot watch because NBC has any and all streams/videos/etc on lockdown if you don't subscribe to a TV service....which we do not.... *sigh*

    Also, I think your link is broken
    To be loved by a horse should fill us with awe, for we hath not deserved it.
