Nature Really Needs To Eliminate The Stupid

Oh my god. This horse is a saint. Who's the dumb beast here. I think the one with two legs. The embed capability was disabled due to request. Hmmm, why would that be? Click the link and you'll find out.

  1. OMG - did that rider think he would get extra points for landing back in the saddle after flying off it so many times? That poor horse - the rider landed on his neck once!! I agree animal a saint, rider an idiot.

  3. Isn't that animal cruelty? I mean seruiously, the man shouldn't be allowed anywhere near a horse again. Even I know you're not meant to ride like that! The horse was wonderful.

  4. This rider needs to install a seat belt!

    Poor horse, don't blame it for not wanting to make that jump.

  5. That guy deserved to be dumped, hard. But it would be taken out on the horse if he were. Personally I think it is up to the judges to stop a ride when they see something like this.

  7. After reading the comments, I am too scared to go over and watch. Sometimes I think I am better off being left in the dark...

  8. I read somewhere else... can't remember where now, but it made sense... that this was a staged performance. Not making excuses, just saying...If you watch closely (and I did) you can see the rider is using the stirrups to take his weight after being airborne. Except where he falls on the horses neck :(

    "They" are saying the horse is Andarilho and the rider is Vitor Gon├žlves, a polo player from Portugal. The guy must be nuts and the horse was not injured. Either way and no matter what, it was stupid, useless, unresponsible and dangerous.

    I do want that horse, though! What a saint! Plus it looks like a blue roan...my favorite color!

I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
