Very cool video that Doug Payne put together on Running Order's training progression over the past 4 years:

Wow, this is awesome! The difference between the horse at the beginning and the horse at the end is unbelievable.

I still can't believe how fast these professional riders get their horses to the 4* level... 4 years! :eek:

It's truly amazing.

I wish we could have photos and video of lots of ULH like this. It would be so educational. It is nice that for the most part, Doug talks about his horse and his unique features and personality without sugar-coating too much.

Very impressive! Not only a great horse, but what a great rider in Doug to develop this horse's talents! So cool that he had pictures and video to show the changes in just 4 years. What fun :)

Love it! More upper riders should do that, especially with the OTTBs. That would be great exposure!
