German rider Niklas Bschorer sets off his protective air-vest while battling to stay on his horse at the Badminton Horse Trials. The air-vest is similar to an airbag in a car. If the rider falls it will inflate and help protect against injury. I know many cross country riders swear by them and they even make a kids version. Do you think these air-vests are strictly for cross country or should other disciplines be using them? Also, do you think more children should be wearing them? We’d love to hear your opinions. Share this on Facebook if you think the air-vest is a great idea!
Ruby Walsh aims to prove right the old racing adage of, “if you can jump a car, you can jump a fence”. Personally this freaks me out! What do you think? If your horse could jump a moving car, would you do it? Share this on Facebook if you Ruby’s horse is worth his weight in gold!
This is what happens when you have an AMAZING MARE! After parting company with her owner, Gianna Hansen, the 2007 mare Shine Di Light (Boonlight Dancer x Shining Di x Shining Spark) made two fence turns and circled up all on her own. No one was hurt but everyone was impressed by Shine Di Light’s self-directed performance! Talk about a horse that loves her job, she kept on doing it without a rider! Share this on Facebook if you think all horses should enjoy their jobs this much!
