TEDDY ROCKS RIO!!! TWO GOLD MEDALS!!! Go (US Bred) Pony, GO!!!
Yes, you heard it correctly, Theodore O'Connor has won BOTH the Individual and Team Gold Medals in Eventing at the Pan American Games this afternoon. Bred right here in the good old US of A by our very own P. Wynn Norman and ridden by Karen O'Connor.
And just in case you've missed the memo, Teddy is a true pony, standing at 14.1 hands. Maybe it IS about the stride?!?!
Once again, I do hope that this major, blatant BRAG is worth the exception. If not, I'll see you all in Three Days!
The above post is an opinion, just an opinion. If it were a real live fact it would include supporting links to websites full of people who already agreed with me.
WELL DONE TEDDY (and all his connections!). This shows that there should be some serious attention paid to including pony genetics in our event horse breeding programs. The smaller cattier athletes seem to be filling the first three spots in more than their "fair" share of the 4 stars this year - Theodore O'Connor and Headly Brittania being the prime examples.
