If you haven’t seen this video before, you’re in for a real shock. English ShowJumper Nick Skelton clears 2.32m in 1978 at Olympia, setting the world record for a high jump.

It is apparent that Nick Skelton is not only very talented and skilled, but is also completely and utterly fearless. I mean, you kind of have to be fearless to cleanly jump your horse over the equivalent of Shaquille O’Neal (7’1) with a top-hat on. <—Now THAT would be a video!
