After jumping 6’9″ to win the Puissance Class at the Washington International Horse Show last week, Tim Gredley and Unex Valente raced up another win over the 7′ wall at the Alltech National Horse Show.
It is a heck of a long way down after they cleared that fence! Unbelievably, 7′ isn’t even close to the world record. The current indoor record for Puissance is held by German rider Franke Sloothaak, who in June 1991 jumped 7’10” (2.4 meters).
Check out the video of that jump. The slow motion portion that shows the horse taking off for that jump is truly impressive.
