    I love The Big Bang theory, I had no idea that she rode, and obviously quite well too.

    Wonder if she has problems going through the airport like I do with a rod in my leg.

    I have a clause in my life insurance policy that says I have to wear a helmet whenever I am on a horse. They probably have a rider in the policy for that (no pun intended).

    She's shown more recently, I think, but she does use a pseudonym—[edit] Here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L4OeYGaOEDc

    Here are some more videos of her riding. Not a good day in the ring.

    She's riding her gelding Uvar in one of them (he's the one with the refusal). I remember seeing him on TV when he was at Spruce Meadows and I was smitten with him way back then and I still am.

    Yup, I've showed "against" her a bunch in the Mojams (and maybe Lows, I can't recall) at LAEC, Oaks and Thermal. She does show under a pseudonym (apparently problems with the paparazzi so I won't betray her pseudo here) and she's a pretty darn good rider. Her horses are super nice and super cute too. My trainer apparently knew her and was talking to her and she seemed really sweet. I haven't watched BBT, but I thought she was hilarious in the 8 Simple Rules show back in the day.

    I think it's super cool that she rides; I had no idea! I do not, however, find it cool to hunt down bad ride videos and put them up here. That just seems mean. I also don't appreciate the pseudonym identification, but that's just my own sense of honoring privacy and good manners. Obviously not shared!

    Luckily for the rest of us, nobody scours the internet for videos of our bad days.

    I didn't scour the internet for "bad ride" videos. In searching her pseudonym, these videos were openly available on an equestrian videographer's site. I did remove my reference to her pseudonym from my post. As someone who has never had to deal with paparazzi, it's easy to overlook the reasons why someone chooses to go by a different name. In all honesty, it didn't even cross my mind when I posted it.

    We all have bad days in the ring and regardless, I still think she's a gifted rider and very lucky to pursue her passion. As riders, I'm sure we can all relate to imperfect performances. I'm impressed with the fact that she got hurt as seriously as she did and is still riding at the same level she was prior to her accident. So no judgement or mockery - at all.

    Eh. No show starts out as one of the most popular shows on tv. I do love BBT, but I'll bet the premise sounded like a long shot at first. Maybe nobody worried about her riding at the beginning, and once the show took off, she had the star power to continue to do as she liked with her free time.

    A steady job on a funny show, multiple horses, a cute boyfriend who goes along to her horse activities. Plus she seems to get on magazine covers for nice reasons, not bad ones. Good for her!

    She's not the first celebrity to show under a different name. Didn't Brad Pitt do that with reining horses? Maybe Linda Blair on jumpers as well, back in the day?

    I think I loff her more because of those videos. The last time I showed, I fell off in the ring and it's seriously affected my mojo. So my next show before I go in, which I will because she's inspired me, I'll start a ritual on the arena fence...

    Knock, knock, knock... Penny?
    Knock, knock, knock... Penny?
    Knock, knock, knock... Penny?

    Or should I sing soft kitty? Thoughts?

    Do the "knock knock knock Penny" right before you enter the ring and then sing soft kitty as you go round

    I love the show and this makes me love her even more!!

    Well no wonder she's so good at playing a kick ass chick on the show...she rides! She's now one of my favorite actors.
    If i smell like peppermint, I gave my horse treats.
    If I smell like shampoo, I gave my horse a bath.
    If I smell like manure, I tripped.

    Duh, I totally know who "[she]" is and have shown against her several times. Never recognized her and I think I have seen every episode at least 3 times. LOL!

    Personally, I would steer clear of Soft Kitty. They only sing it on the show when somebody is sick or hurt, so I would be afraid of jinxing myself!

    Well, to be fair, she probably doesn't walk around the horse show with the same hair, makeup, and wardrobe as on BBT. Or at least, that seems unlikely.
