So Scopey He Could Jump A Plane...


I'm just wondering what's going through someone's head when they see a plane on the ground and think, "Yeah, I'd like to jump that.  On a horse.  At speed."

Or, better yet, I want to know who sees a plane and thinks, "I bet if I cut the wheels off that thing it'd make one hell of a cross country jump!"

I wonder how many times the rider had to point the horse at the fence before it went over.  I HAVE to believe there was some intense discussion between horse and human about the pros and cons of this endeavor.

Anyone else think there may have been adult beverages involved???

  1. I don't know. It's not like the horse knows it is a plane and where they are jumping it doesn't make it seem any more crazy then some of the other xc-jumps out there (the planet jump from the Olympics comes to mind). It's probably more a person psych-out than a horse psych-out type jump.

  2. I wouldn't do it, but I see the appeal. You can even choose your favorite height. If the horse was already jumping in a rhythm, he probably wouldn't think twice. ;)

  3. I would totally jump that, but then, I event. It doesn't even look all that high.

  4. My takeaway from your comments is that y'all are a LOT braver than I am! Good on you! LOL

  5. I'd jump it! Looks fun to me! But I've jumped all kinds of weird/stupid things...

  6. Cool picture. Thank you for sharing!

  7. I thought it was brilliant. And it doesn't look that high.

  8. Rare picture in cross country jumps. Thanks for sharing. The keys to safety in Cross Country Horse Jumps are solidity and security.
