You have to love how Kelly Ripa is shorter than her kid's pony. And I liked this quote-
"She's obsessed," says dad, Mark Consuelos, of 8-year-old Lola, who was champion in her short stirrup category. "She has a couple ponies – Clever Endeavor and Dawns Early Light – which means we can never retire ... our name is not Bloomberg, it's Consuelos."
It's so cute when rich people do the whole, pshaw, we're not that rich, routine. Unconvincing, but sweet.
Huh, I opened this expecting to see photos of celebs actually riding children.
But nope, it was mini-celebs riding ponies.
There are a LOT of celebrity offpsring who ride...and ride very well.
Of course there are a few who ride llike shite but ride anyway.
Not much different than us unwashed masses who ride.
You jump in the saddle,
Hold onto the bridle!
Jump in the line!
Bah. I want to see *pictures* of said kids riding, not publicity shots.
Hrm. Video even better
All three of these kids are great riders who work very hard at what they do. They don't just sit there and let their expensive horses tote them around. Jess wouldn't have won the Maclay last year and wouldn't be putting down winning trips in the jumper ring if not for lots of hard work. Bensimon, I don't know. At least she tries. Sure, she doesn't have the lingo down, nor the form or ability yet, ok and no fashion sense but at least she tries. It must be difficult to put yourself in that spotlight in light of the Housewives nonsense. By the way, no Countess Kid this year?? The Kardashian picture was hilarious. What does Kim Kardashian need leather inside the pants legs for? Hmm....I wonder. So funny!!!

(And before anyone feels the need to comment that she doesn't know her leads , part of the test was to counter canter one jump. She was the only rider in the test who managed to land and hold the counter lead to that jump.)
