Visionaire over at Eventing Nation dug up this video of Cougar Rock at the Tevis Cup. As she says, it kind of puts things in perspective.From Visionaire:
I don’t think I’ll ever complain about footing again after watching this video. Since volunteering at WEG 2010, I’ve had a special place in my heart for endurance riders. Here in the US, we have one of the most difficult endurance races in the world: the Tevis Cup. Anyone who even starts the Tevis Cup has my admiration…and those who finish, well they’re heroes. What brave horses!
Be sure to watch beyond 6 minutes in the video… the camera angle changes to the top of the rock, quite a daunting look down.
