Saturday Video: Denman Wins the 2008 Cheltenham Gold Cup

Earlier this week at the Young Event Horse Seminar there was a lot of discussion about what makes a good gallop in a horse.  Robin Walker mentioned one of his favorite examples for an exceptional gallop: the great steeplechaser, Denman.  A big, rangy dark bay gelding, Denman simply ran his competitors into the ground with relentless, rhythmic strides.  I could watch him run all day (and he probably could!).

Enjoy Denman shown here winning the 2008 Cheltenham Gold Cup.  Don’t we all wish our horses could gallop like that?
