Back then was more dare devil jumps then what it is today. Im surprised that more riders did not have concussions or head injuries with out the helmet. Plus there were no vests either back then, notice a few getting step on by horse. More safety had been brought in now years later, then what it was then. I know that there are some bank jumps now, but not the height that the one was on this video.

Would I do it, years ago when I was younger maybe. Not now, I break and do not bounce anymore. LOL

Thanks for sharing.

Have a GREAT weekend.

REALLY neat to watch...thanks a ton for sharing! I love how almost everyone had the title "Major" or "Lieutenant" and what have you. Shows the true origin of eventing, really.
