    This strip reminds me what happened to Christopher
    Reeves. It was a sad ending to a great actor.

    That horse has very good manners; he always lets the rider go over first.

    I agree, that was such a tragedy to see that perfect specimen put in a vegetative state,
    it turned out to be loss of a kingdom for a horse.

    He was also a poor substitute for Jimmy Stewart in the unnecessary remake of ‘Rear Window’.

    QM: It’s good to see you up and moving. I was beginning to believe you were in a vegetative state.

    I believe a lightweight rider has a better chance of getting a horse to jump. Chris was just too heavy a guy that the horse didn’t have confidence of getting over. If the horse got injured, they would just kill it…… unless a rare bit of humanitarianism came through.

    Always those great colors in this Sunday strip. Much more so than in the current ones I read. Who says things improve with time.

    A horse has to be trained to jump from an early age. You can’t expect just any riding horse to jump.

    Not too early. Bones need to get some strength to take the brunt of the force of the landing. I for one can not and will not use spurs. That’s how I discovered my splay-footedness is a major problem, plus painful to the horse.

    Three strokes of genius: the horse’s leg-up, the single spur and Mutt’s coat!

    First he mounted the horse on the wrong side. Second, you don’t need spurs for jumping. You never jab a horse with spurs, they are used to nudge the horse gently usually while driving cattle. I have ridden horses all my life and never use them except for a wall hanger in my den.

    I liked him in “Time and again”.
