    Meh, my horse & I would trash both these chicks at the same time.




    Also, the best mounted combat you'll see today is in Afghanistan.

    Nice horse. What breed is it? Quarter?

    Thanks. He's a Buckskin Appaloosa. The only one I've ever seen. We've been partners for over 16 years now.

    C0WBOY- as an experienced horse rider and grappler, what were your thoughts on those videos (besides that you could beat them up)?

    I think it was a well-thought out demonstration. They obviously put some time into their research. I however, would like to see a little more of a full-contact demo. Maybe even some randori. But that wasn't the objective of their demo.

    It should be noted that they were riding without the aid of stirrups, which while is old-school traditional, greatly reduced ones balance on the horse.

    The horses had nice gaits and seemed well trained and unadversed to performing this demo. It was obviously NOT the first time they've practiced it.

    It should also be noted that I'd probably do the blond chick. I'd take the other chick as well if it was a 2-for-1 offer.

    Horse randori sounds badass, but I'd hate to get thrown from horse-height onto ground hard enough for good horse traction. Then again I don't know much about horses.

    I understand that they weren't using stirrups as a safety measure to avoid getting their feet tangled during the falls.

    Theresa Wendland's own comments on their research and on the videos are available at Mounted Wrestling Video - Sword Forum International .

    Good Judo breakfalls really help when getting thrown from horses/bulls.

    Meh, I guess. I attend Jousting National Championships every year in Crownsville, MD. It's full-contact combat and they all use stirrups despite any safety concerns.

    Lemme tell you, THAT is one hellova spectator sport. Watching a guy eat a facefull of wood & spltinters and getting de-horsed at a full gallop NEVER gets old. Makes me wonder how it ever went out of style?

    Yup. I've seen it happen while the rider and horse were trotting, and thank God that the horse was a cool one. Nasty sh*t.

    This is one of the reasons I practice Judo. Well, that and the fact that you usually have to wrestle an overly excited filly/colt to get them vaccinated. Judo newaza is a pretty common subject in my club.
