Talk about form over fences!

Mike Plumb and Bold Minstral 1964 Olympics
This form is what I aspire to achieve over a fence of any size! This is connection to die for with a rock solid leg and an automatic release that follows effortlessly and maintains contact without becoming restrictive. It's Mike Plumb and Bold Minstral 1964 Olympics.

  1. Indeed, a strong leg. Interesting topic – as always.
    There are riders I admire with different styles, one is Bernie Traurig.
    I mention him only because I’m studying his video series for an article about (non promo) about him. The depth of weight in heels he emphasizes really creates a great supporting brace, and yet he stays soft, elastic and relaxed. All the basics of flatwork apply!
    I say this with the caveat of someone who simply jumps low cavalleti at most, given a wish to preserve a musculoskeletal condition! But one can still get a sense, as you said of what’s right at any size jump.
