The next best thing to actually going cross-country yourself? Living vicariously through other people’s rounds, of course. We particularly love this one, ably documented by Maria Temperini, for the sheer enthusiasm and love shared between rider and horse. Seriously, watch this one right ’til the end, and tell me you’re not feeling a little prickle behind the eyes after. I challenge you.
Stone Gate Farm organiser and course designer Jackie Smith brought this one to our attention, telling EN that “as an organizer and course designer I was a bit disappointed that I didn’t get a chance to watch very much of the Prelim and Training rides, and I was thrilled to hear an excited Maria telling me that she had a great ride. Like all of us, she has had the ups and downs on cross country and recently had a vest deployment at a ditch, so needless to say she was thrilled. Today she shared her helmet cam of her ride which was fabulous, as well as her excitement. But you have to wait until the end of the video to hear her discussion with her horse Detour. It’s moments like this that makes all of our hard work worth it.”
Okay, now the eye prickles really ARE coming on strong.
