Rolling In The Deep


Bernie Traurig takes a look back at the progression water jumps have made in the sport of eventing. You'll see unbelievable footage of horses and riders negotiating the very first and very daunting water jump that made it's debut at the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Eventing super star, Michael Plumb, makes quite a splash in rare footage from the 1964 Olympic Trials in Gladstone, New Jersey.  The more "civilized" water obstacles used today can be seen in 2007 footage when Olympian Gina Miles and her horse McKinlaigh skillfully negotiate the water at the beautiful Badminton Horse Trials.
