Thursday’s VIDEO Break – British Champs

Take a 25 minute break to put yourself in a better place by watching the highlights from the 2014 British Eventing Championships, which were shockingly sunny.   For more Eventing news from around the word check out Today’s SCOOP   Scroll for more top stories on Eventing Connect

Monday’s VIDEO Break – Dog at work

Dog at work.

    Obviously the reason eventers all own Jack Russells or some form of a dog, is because they put them to work. Who needs working students?

Sunday’s VIDEO Break

Contrary to how this looks, she did not have too much to drink.

    If you are trying to figure out what to get the horse lover that has everything for Christmas, just get them another horse. There is no limit to how many horses a person can love – it does not matter if it is their first horse or their 100th, their reaction will be this priceless.

Saturday’s VIDEO Break

Brace for impact...

    Not to spoil it for you but this is video does not involve a great save, more of a great big splat… The beauty of watching these incidents on video is you do not feel obligated to curtail your laughter.

Friday’s VIDEO Break

Mary King is the queen of getting it done.

  Yesterday, we brought you 1967 Burghley. Today we are revisiting Badminton 2014 as it was full of thrills and even more spills. Mary King wins for the best save – stickability and keeping her cool in the most precarious positions. It is easy to see why she is the last woman to top the FEI World Rankings.

Thursday’s VIDEO Break

Minimal safety equipment, maximum stickability.

    Burghley throwback:  Set your time travel device to 47 years plus a few months in the past and head on over to the Burghley horse trials… Old time eventing is hard not to love watching, but you may not want to jump what they were flying over then.

Wednesday’s VIDEO Break

If you try this at your stable please send the video to Eventing Connect.

    New version of drag racing: Getting dragged through the mud by a horse unfortunately happens to the best of riders and grooms/parents/friends, who sacrifice themselves and never let go of the lead rope… But sometimes people willingly get dragged through the mud by a horse at high speeds for a shot at $50,000.

Tuesday’s VIDEO Break

Bad dog, bad dog, whatcha gonna do?

    I can’t think of an eventer that does not own a dog. So I think we can all appreciate our other four legged friends and the humour they bring to our lives . Time to take a break in your busy day for a little dog naughtiness. Of course, it always funnier when it is not your dog….
