    How utterly refreshing to see someone at a big time show just brimming with blatant enthusiasm for his student or child - instead of having that nose-in-the-air-we-dont-act-like-we-care attitude!!!!!! THAT is a man I'd like to train with!

    Good Heavens, from all the fuss kicked up here, I expected to see a "little league" type Screaming-at-the-top-of-his-lungs parent.

    I thought his enthusiasm was charming.

    If he were the parent of a child I taught, I would probably tease him mercilessly - but having an involved father of a teenage male rider is so rare that I don't think I'd ever have that problem!

    i keep coming back to watch this--he seems like the kind of trainer that would make it (even more) fun to go the barn and ride!

    Just wondering though... are the hip gyrations... half halts?? maybe there is something behind the madness? it certainly looks like he's riding the course with his son! Love it either way...

    I just wish they had a side by side split screen view of the horse going over the fence so you could see Dad moving with son, synchronized side by side. I think that would be awesome.

    What a terrific thing, thanks for sharing!

    Go Deleyers!

    I was thinking this too! This video is awesome, I posted it on Facebook a few days ago, I agree that I would love to have such an enthusiastic supporter!

    I love the way he's "jumping" the jumps for the horse, like he's doing a voo doo dance to keep those rails up

    I love it when he kicks out his back leg.

    That is THE most embarassing thing I've ever seen a parent do at a show ....I am definitely in the "pretend he's not your dad" camp!

    Im in the love it boat. If my parents ever showed even 1/10 of that when I was a Jr i would have probably cringed at the time but loved it as I got older.

    Wish he was in my area I would train with him in a heart beat. Im sure his student, horses, parents of students love him.

    I love that he reluctantly tones it down when the gray horse is standing next to him waiting to go into the ring. He looks at the horse a few times as though to remind himself that he should probably refrain from those leg kicks for now.
