    I'm so glad The Chronicle got more details. The whole thing was so funny!

    I'm glad they all enjoyed it. I thought it was funny.

    That was great ... although in the intro with the voice over the horse is doing a half-pass, not a passage, and the "piaffe" was the passage. But, who cares in the grand scheme of things.

    Conchita did give a nice spook there, he did a good job staying on! I would have "piaffed" a little myself!

    Good for the USEF and Barisone for having a sense of humor about it all!
    ...somewhere between the talent and the potato....

    It was mentioned on another thread that it was a "special" prize for some big class.

    Thanks for a great article, COTH! Glad to see that the folks at USEF and the farm had a good sense of humor about the situation, and I've loved all the big red foam fingers. And I've gotten a ton of questions from coworkers, who vaguely know I ride, about it, so it's definitely gotten a lot of attention for the sport from the general public.
