Olympics – 1984 Los Angeles – ABC Profile – Equestrian Horse Show Jumping 2nd Round 10 Jump Course


It is very interesting what goes into setting up a course of 10 fences for the 2nd round course at the Olympics Equestrian Show Jumping Competition….as ABC’s Bill Steinkraus and Chris Schenkel describe to the viewer prior to the start of the 2nd round jumps.  When you get to look at these jumps “up close and personal”…it becomes clearly obvious what outstanding athletes these horses truly are….I mean, to be able to not only propel an animal the size of a horse….while carrying a 165+/- lb person over these jumps….is truly an athlete of the highest order.
