  1. I love whatching horses jump. I think that they look so beautiful flying through the air like they have wings. I have always been afraid of whatching the riders though because everytime the horse goes over they look like they are going to come off from them. There is only one thing that I really don’t like about jumping though that is when the horse gets hurt plus sometimes the rider pushes them to hard. I am not saying that all riders do just some of them do..
