Okay...I finally was able to watch these at home...with the sound playing. Most funny thing I have seen in a long time!!!!
Are we 100% sure these aren't a joke? Like a great big internet spoof? They are soooooo wrong it is a bit scary.
Though, in retrospect...there are people at my boarding facility who do things like this. *shudder*
Unfortunately, Sarah and Rowdy were registered with the Washington State Horsesman, and I've seen some of that organization's shows from the time the videos were made. They used to put them on at the barn my h/j trainer was at. They were essentially 'winglish'.
At the time these videos were made, Sarah was pretty much par for the course. And she wasn't the only one. Unfortunately, her level of knowledge, especially about jumping, was pretty common at that time, from what I could see.
Oh. Emm. Gee. That was hysterical, I think I wet my Depends.
When you noted Jazz' Gluteus Maximus she gave you a look that said 'WTF happened to you?!'... then the horse in the background at the end who sounded like he was laughing at you're, 'well the saddle is on backwards sans the beginner belt, so we're off' was perfect!
Ok now we want to see you canter those fences on your Nationals pony!
Like someoone else said, oh em geeee. I watched your video three times already. SO funny! You're a natural actress - I'd have cracked up long before the "16.3 1/2 is about the same as 8 hands" but I for sure wouldn't have gotten through that part. Bravo, woman. Bravo!
I think we have all been punked!!! There is no way anyone can be that clueless!!!! I thought of the splint video as I was putting the shin splint boots on my horse yesterday. You see we ride in western events so he has a greater risk of shin splints than he would if we evented.
I thought about it and decided that since I also have shin splints, if he were to get them we would be in better balance since both of us would have them. What do ya'll think?
I know that you must be so busy getting Jazz ready for the Small Pony Finals at the end of the year. No doubt that she is showing you many happy ears.
Thanks to your vid, I have seen the error of my wicked ways and I abuse my horse no more.
Please, PLEEEEZE make more vids - for the sake of the horses that will benefit from your awsome EXPERTise. The other horse forum I go to is howling for more. As one of the commenters said on YT, "Pure commic gold."
Questiion, if you don't mind. It turns out that my horse is neither left or right-hoofed; he's ambidextrous and speshul. Should I put shin spint boots on both fronts or maybe one on front and the other on the diagonal back so he feels balanced?
