[RC] cougar rock video - Sbolinge

A few years ago..back when you HAD to go over cougar rock...someone made a video of every horse going over Cougar rock.  It was fun and interesting to watch.  The front runners, up until about the middle of the pack, went over smoothly, gracefully and with hardly a hitch.  Then as the second half of the riders went over, things slowly but surely started to deteriorate,,,riders bailing off, horses changing their minds about half way up and just one mishap after another and lots of near mishaps.  The difference in rider/horse skills between the front half and the second half of the "pack" was glaringly obvious.
