  1. I’m surprised they are still allowed to do this. The Spanish also used to drop live goats out of towers until it was finally made illegal.

  2. Let’s not forget baby jumping!

    But honestly, I have no idea how he got the horse to do this, and I used to be a groom. Horses are scared of fire like nothing else on Earth.

  3. You don’t get it: The horse trusts in Jesus, for through Him, all things are possible. The rider, well, he was enjoying a pleasant evening’s highwaymanning … Until his horse abruptly got religion, anyway.
