Puissance in the Park

Which is more daunting, the 6’9″ Puissance wall or the hack between the ring and the stabling areas at the Central Park Horse Show?

Emanuel Andrade (VEN) and Clouwni are shown “hailing a cab” over the wall. Although this was Andrade’s first Puissance competition, he pulled off a three-way tie with Kama Godek (USA) and De Grande and Todd Minikus (USA) and VDL Excel.

Almost more exciting is the video that Godek shot as she hacked her Puissance mount back to the stabling area where the face a ton of baby carriages, bikers, roller bladers, food trucks, brick tunnels and a lot of other things not typically confronted by a Grand Prix jumper. Sure, Da Grande was a bit skittish, but the pair get high marks for bravery both in and out of the ring.
