Well, this is certainly one way to get your horse used to a rider while jumping. This video is making its rounds on social media at the moment, and it features a dummy riding a very game horse while going through some simple jumping exercises.

In the initial view of the video, it’s easy to think that the “person” is, in fact, real — until you see the bouncing hands and unsteady torso and wonder if this rider is feeling alright.

As the caption states — and we agree — the rider definitely needs to lower his hands!
