wallace helmet cam

  Ride around the challenging Carolina International CIC3* cross-country track with Elisa Wallace (USA) and Simply Pricless. Yesterday, many of the top riders in North America rode around this course, which caused some problems for even seasoned pairs. Elisa and her 16-year-old Thoroughbred gelding, Simply Priceless coasted around the course adding only 8.8 time penalties to their score to finish in a respectable 30th place. This pair is planning to contest at the prestigious Badminton CCI4* this spring. Enjoy taking a virtual ride aboard this seasoned four-star horse…     Scroll for more top stories on Eventing Connect

Horses that are severely allergic to wood

overjump

  Some horses are more careful jumpers than others. But there are overachieving mounts that seemingly defy the laws of gravity while jumping. Maybe it is because they are allergic to wood or perhaps, they are trying to avoid getting eaten a monster that could be lurking under the fence. These horses’ riders might want to wear a spacesuit during their next jump school because their steeds are jumping to the moon…   We r jumping only a 110cm not a 160cm Olympics level hahaha jumping is amazing #Follow4follow #Likes4Likes #Jumping #110cm #not160cm #Overjump #Equestrian #Horseloveraccount #100likes #Nomypic #Photography #Showjumping…

The beach is clearly more fun with horses – VIDEO Break

horse beach

  Over the winter, you probably saw some clips of people ‘skijoring’, which is when a skier is pulled behind a horse and rider. If you thought that looked like fun, how about wakeboarding behind a horse. Everyone knows that summer activities are way better than winter because duh, you aren’t freezing your face off. By the time you finish watching this video, you might be ordering a wakeboard and arranging a trip to the beach with your horse and friends…

  On Tuesday, we asked you to vote for the ‘five-star’ jumper from the Preliminar at Exmoor H T. Hundreds of people voted for which duo they thought jumped the corner out of the water complex the best. These are the riders who most impressed the masses with their ‘five-star’ ability! Congrats to these skilled riders and their talented mounts.

This show jumper can’t be tamed – VIDEO Break

show jumper stall

  Once a horse knows how to jump it can be hard to keep contained. Paddock fences, stalls, etc. are all just another fence. This show jumper has learned that he doesn’t have to stay in his stall because he can just jump to freedom. Have you ever had a horse that was tough to keep in some enclosures?

“Woah Shamrock!” OTTB takes man on the ride of his life – VIDEO Break

Screen Shot 2017-03-22 at 5.40.46 PM

  Inexperienced rider, Nick Bull got more than he bargained for when he went out for a hack on his OTTB, Shamrock. Although Shamrock is retired, he forgot this and began reliving his glory days taking Nick for a high-speed gallop. Nick begged and pleaded for his speedy steed to slow down but his efforts were futile and he ultimately took a tumble into the mud. Fortunately, both horse and rider were unharmed and a hilarious helmet cam video was the result of this small fiasco…

Exmoor H.T. Training cross-country - Photo gallery

IMG_1302

  Over the weekend, hundreds of Florida-based eventers contested at the inaugural Exmoor H.T. in Reddick, Florida. This new event was a huge success, and there was even a massive wait list with over 60 pairs left on it. The cross-country course featured some gently rolling terrain (a nice change from the usual flat Florida events), and the courses were rather ‘old school’ with many post and rail type fences. I spent my Sunday watching the cross-country, getting a sunburn and of course, snapping some pictures of the action. Check out and share these photos from the Training cross-country. Feel free…

  VOTING IS NOW CLOSED. Over the weekend, Florida-based eventers were contesting at the inaugural Exmoor Horse Trials in Reddick, Florida. It is exciting to have a new venue in Florida and eventers entered this event in full force, there was even a waitlist with over 60 pairs. A total of 48 pairs contested in the Preliminary across three divisions. The cross-country course was very old school featuring long gallops and many traditional post and rail type jumps. I was able to photograph every combination in the Preliminary jumping the corner out of the water, which was after a rolltop…
