Monday Video from Tredstep Ireland: Could You Manage this Massive Grid?

The Guinness Book of Records cites just a couple of records relating to horses jumping. There’s an official record for puissance (8 ft 1.25 in), for highest jump by a Miniature Horse (42.5 in), and for longest jump over a liverpool (27 ft 6 in), but there doesn’t appear to be a record for longest grid or course. Should someone ever strive to set that record, we herby nominate the folks at Harbarnsen Riding Club in Germany who have brought insanity in the middle to their schooling session by setting up a monstrous grid guaranteed to work that equine booty and then some.

Behold: the “mega row,” posted to Facebook by Lisanne Kriescher, that consists of 8 ground poles, 6 raised cavaletti, 18 crossrail bounces, 4 one stride verticals, finishing with two strides to an oxer. Phew.

Here’s a drive-by view of the whole thing:
