Just check out how patient this horse is with the baby goat!
This would be funnier if it didn’t have a few elements of truth.
Did Chevy get this right?
Apparently, the answer is . . . . NOTHING!
This rider was at a show jumping competition in Bourg-en-Bresse, France. The class was supposed to a costume class, but the rider D. Ribot did not have a costume ready. The judge told him to compete naked (we can assume it was a joke). He did.
Although I cringed for him over some of the landings, it’s an impressive performance. Now, can he still father children?
Who used to watch the re-runs of the Lone Ranger? I used to love that show! This wonderful clip from 1949 shows how the Lone Ranger gentled the wild Silver and started him under saddle. Hi ho Silver! Away!!
You can watch most of the episodes on YouTube if you want to take a walk down memory lane or get ready for the Johnny Depp version.
My grandfather was a volunteer fireman for about 75 years (he was 105 when he died). One of his earliest memories, and the one that sparked his interest in becoming a fireman, was watching the horse drawn fire trucks coming up 9th avenue in New York.
This video from 1903 shows just how fast those fireman could get their horses harnessed and going — just 15 seconds! Those horses are primed and ready to go.
Lovely video with a spectacular opening sequence!
I must admit that until I saw this video teaching my horse how to jump rope had never crossed my mind. Not sure it’s something I would still ever even try, but it’s still quite an accomplishment.
