Video: "Hmmm... ok." Laughing rider deals with spooks, refusals and a fall

Fans of CSI 5* show jumping regularly see elite-level horses flying full-speed over obstacles up to 1.60 m. But of course not every animal is made for such activities, as shown in the video below featuring the sensible and cautious mounts Maverick and Roger. Indeed, as their rider notes, the pair are not only a bit put off by little jumps but also dogs, babies and caterpillars. Still, while the horses are unlikely to be seen in arenas at Spruce Meadows or Aachen anytime soon, the most important thing is that they are exercising and hopefully enjoying themselves as much as their owner.
