Blind horse breaks three Guinness World Records in Oregon

A 22-year-old Oregon horse with no eyes broke three Guinness World Records: highest free jump by a blind horse, most flying changes by a horse in one minute and fastest time for a blind horse to weave five poles. The horse, Endo, started having eye problems when he was 8 years old, and he was diagnosed with equine recurrent uveitis, which eventually led to his eyes having to be removed. It took some time for him to regain his confidence. He learned to jump again after going blind because he competed in a discipline that required upper-level riding and obstacle work, and in that discipline, he became national champion at the highest level. The now-22-year-old horse showed he still has skills by taking on the trio of records. (UPI)
