Named after the French word for “power,” the Puissance is quite recently that: a high-bounce rivalry that tests a steed and rider’s extension, mettle, and the majority of all, their trust in one other. (What’s more, no, that is not a strong block divider—the top bit is made of lightweight building squares finished with felt and intended to break separated at the scarcest rub.) The final product is, in turns, both exciting and nail-gnawing to watch. Or, on the other hand, as a companion and novice let me know in the wake of going to the previous evening’s class at the Washington International Horse Show (WIHS), “Watching it makes me feel like a giggly school young lady!”The opposition more often than not happens more than five rounds, with the mammoth divider raised incrementally at the end of each round at the discretion of the course architect. Riders must finish a short, three-bounce course before handling the divider in the first round, and afterward only a spread hop (for this situation, a triple bar) before the divider in each consequent round.

Best prizes go to whoever can bounce the most elevated, or, as is frequently the case, whoever can achieve the pined for “7-Foot Club”: an exceedingly restrictive gathering of stallions and riders that incorporates Rodney Jenkins, course planner Anthony d’Ambrosio (who has held the record of 7’7″ for over 25 years), and Margie Goldstein-Engle.
