We used to watch it Dianne, both live and on TV. It used to be all over TV at one time, and to be honest I would prefer it to some of the boring stuff thats on nowadays. Although I suspect a lot found showjumping boring at the time. Saw the end of the Puissance on YouTube, two very different approaches, but effective.
In our home, dog fur is a fashion accessory! It's also a condiment....... Yay!  Heart

In my youth I attempted to do some horse jumping, Smile  nothing more than 24 inches high Blush , I had to follow in the family tradition. Yes  Those who watch show jumping on TV will from time to time see the problems I found from day one. Gasp  Yes you can point a horse at an obstetrical, and yes it will jump over it, my problem was to still be with the horse on the other side. please  We would part company before takeoff , during, or after the event. Soon preferred a car. At least you can stop that when needed. Agree

I rode when young but never jumped. I was at school with two girls who’s ponies won the Show Pony of the Year at Horse of the Year Show.

I only ever jumped a horse about twice first was as described above, second was when it bolted, I started the exercise but hit the ground before the horse finished jumping. No showing like that. only to pleased when I passed my driving test. I worked lots of Suffolk horses at harvest time. again I would like to say that was fun, but oh so slow.
