    Default Awesome WEG x-country footage

    This is awesome Helmet cam footage of the entire x-country course. He makes it look easy! It got my adrenaline up as if I were riding it!

    Fantastic! I love Peter and Henny's videos! I also just went and found them on FaceBook (Run Henny Run), so now I can keep up with them (so to speak...)

    Thanks for posting that!

    Wow! I'm almost crying after watching that. What a ride! Magnificent horse and so well ridden! I almost had a heart attack there at the end when he had trouble at that ditch combo.

    I never rode at that level when I was eventing but I remember so well the partnership with the horse and it is so touching to see how much Peter cares for his horse and how hard that horse tries for him.

    oh my gosh, that was the coolest thing ever--i have goosebumps on my arms! What blows me away is that the pace was just pretty much set and they just galloped the whole way (which I can attest is a bloody long course), and other than glancing at his watch, the camera was up the whole time....smooth, awesome ride! thanks for posting that

    You're welcome . I loved that too, Daydream Believer, that it is obvious how much love and respect he and his horse have for each other.

    That was amazing, thanks for posting it! Seeing as I'll never ride at that level, it's really neat to have a glimpse of what it's actually like (sort of! at least visually lol). Those jumps are huge!!!
