    Default USEF network Devon pony jumpers live

    http://usefnetwork.com/featured/2013DevonHorseShow/

    Can I say how glad I am that the kid on the out of control and dangerous pony had the sense to pull up and leave the ring before they got themselves killed? Jesus. I am glad that they didn't end up being one of those scary rides everyone talks about.

    Everyone else has been non scary.

    Agreed, that was really scary to watch.

    Don't think I've gotten to that part yet- thanks for the warning though. What class was that in?

    Ugh too many of those ponies are moving way too fast. And the one kid had a horrible seat. Her legs were flying off the saddle!!!

    It's a live feed so you'd have to wait for the on demand. I don't want to name the pony and rider but I did look up youtube videos and the way of going and start seemed to be part of the norm although they were much much faster in the live video feed.

    A lot of those were a little (or a lot) frightening. Those ponies would do well with a set of brakes installed.

    Watching Adult Ammies now and a lady is down and not moving. I did not see the fall but sure hope she is ok.

    She got up and exited on her own two feet so that is always nice to see.

    There are some really interesting horses in this division, I'm really enjoying it.

    Can you view these video's after the live feed? Would love to see the pony jumpers go!

    Wow, the live feed is so limited-only showing this evenings jumper class? Bummer. I really wanted to watch the Hunters today! :-(

    I didn't think Devon had the Adult Ammies? Just the A/Os?

    Yea. I was watching live last night and was glad they decided to exit the ring. It was scary right from the beginning when the kid had the pony's head cranked around to her knee and it was still trying to take off.

    Don't remember the name, but a pretty black pony with a white blaze. The kid was riding well, but the pony was just crazy!

    I believe they plan to do a live feed of the hunter derby on the weekend.

    Midnight Heart I believe, I saw that one on Saturday and it was crazy. Kudos to the kid for qualifying on such a difficult pony, and even being able to ride it at all.

    IIRC, the Pony Jumpers do not have to qualify via division points earned in a defined period of time since there are so few of them an overfilled class is unlikely.

    I know it's not any of my business, but I'm curious - how did that beautiful chesnut large pony get loose during the model? It's a gorgeous pony and has done so well, what happened?

    I think they're making everything available online afterwards, so you could watch it at your convenience.
