Jumping Obstacles, Italian Cavalry Style

I found this interesting video footed from the Luce Archives in Italy.

This is how you jump obstacles in the field, in the Caprilli ‘Natural System’. Hell bent for leather.

Not many people today have the guts to let their horse carry itself and simply ‘go for it’ and float over obstacles. It isn’t pretty, but it’s efficient and easy on the horse and rider.
