Answer
Rohit,

You find the most interesting things....

The rider is strongly driving the horsr....you can see her legs moving s lot to ask the horse to go.

The horse is wonderful in that it is so willing to run for her, but the whole thing is ridiculous. I wish I could comment on it.

WHY WOULD ANYONE want to run a horse who they say is out of shape as fast as it can go?
What does that prove?
I want to run THEM until they are tired.
They are lucky if they do not break down this horse.....they just said she was out of shape.
This is a film showing igmorance.Too bad.
