makes me HOPE that's not what the eventer world is really like!
Oh no, not at all farmpony, not the Eventers who take this sport seriously at least.

I guarantee you that the Warner Sisters have recieved alot of skuff from their vids, but those who attack them have to understand that those short clips of Boo Boo's occured over an extended period of time throughout their season of showing.

Now granted, the majority of horses that Eventers use are solid, secure and bold and to be honest, throughout my many years of being an Eventer, I have RARELY seen incidents like these.

I really don't know the story behind the scenes - and I am curious as to know if these Boo Boo's are a regular occurance, or what.

I do think that these horses that the Warner Sisters were using, riding - were green or probobly NOT for the eventing world, but what can one do when they are limited with funds and can only use what they have.

But I do assure you, that this video is NOT a good representation of what really goes on in the Eventing World - amongst trained, educated, prepared riders/competators.

I'm thinking they are "local" level eventers in these videos. I shouldn't have made that comment, I know better. You know, I went to a hunt show last weekend and watching people jump, I kept squeezing my legs trying to ride for the riders that I was watching. Sometimes I think trainers have their students doing things that are WAY above their levels... You know? I am sorry for the comment.

OH NO! Don't be sorry for your comment! You were being honest, and I whole heartedly appreciate that.

I absolutely, did not take offense to your comment what-so-ever, honestly! Don't feel bad, and be as open as you want. Really :)

I can only do my best, through training, edcuating myself, preparing myself to representing the sport that I love so much as best as I can. I cannot control others who are involved in the same sport.

But you are right, unfortunately, it is usually those bad eggs who foul up the representation of the sport to those outside looking in. And that is sad to me, because I work SOOOO HARD to be the best that I can be.

I guess I take my sport very seriously.

Yeah, the people who take eventing lightly rub me the wrong way. I, along with MIE, take my sport very seriously. I watch some people ride horribly around a training level course and it scares the daylights out of me. And then you watch those who ride a course magnificently, and you are so happy!

Exactly, my point was it's the same 4 or 5 (?) kids in that video and over however long of a period of time they don't seem to do anything but fall off or get refusals! I'd give up after a while!

I know what you mean, I have a "lovely" mother in law who is doing prelim with one horse who scares me when he jumps Novice and I have no clue why she keeps moving up - she feels if she gets through a course then they should move up even if they get time faults, or eliminated a few times at that level. She has never placed in the top 5 at any event at any level with this horse. She fails to teach basics. Then she went and got another 17 hand OTTB that she competes and I rode him once over 2'3" jumps and he scared the crap out of me I thought we were going to crash, my own ottb in retraining for a month jumped better then him and she had him a year and a half. Anyways she decided to enter this 17h into a BN event - she got elimated in stadium due to leaving the areana after crashing a fence - she was given permission to ride xc but one refusal she wa done. I was a jump judge and I nearly had a heart attack when she jumped the first fence I was at but then on the 5th her horse who isn't very neat with his front legs hit his knee on the jump and somersaulted over the jump and landed on her thankfully she was fine the horse took 5 min to get up and they had to take the saddle off to get him up (knocked the wind out of him) I called her later to make sure they were ok and she acted like it was no big deal he just has paint marks on his knees he's fine and in 2 weeks took him into another one which of course she was eliminated again for. No matter what I say her thoughts are as long as they keep jumping keep pushing. I DON'T AGREE WITH THIS AT ALL!!!!

On a better note the video was very entertaining for me sitting here with pneumona. Some of those falls where such pony dumps - they can be so evil. Can't wait til next summer show season YIPEE

Those are some pretty interesting looking mishaps!
Speaking of which, I've been meaning to ask you MIEventer if that is you in your avatar?

The warner one makes me giggle. Those horses look to be some of the orneriest beast I have ever seen. Though it does make you wonder, some of those episodes they should have been able to stay on.


Yeah, in eventing don't you get dq'd if you come off? You have to admit that is one awesome horse for just standing there, I know several that would freak out if they saw somebody hanging there like that.

People who do that scare the crap outta me!!! I was at the Waredaca Horse Trials in August and was standing in the showjumping warm up arena helping a friend (it was training level). One of the girls warming up was on a horse that was just barreling around way on his forehand. He kept crashing through jumps and almost killed me when he knocked one down by half falling sideways into it. I steer clear of standing in warm up rings now. Haha.

in xc you get eliminated [nod dq'd] if you fall in the negotiation of an obstacle, but you if you fall while just galloping in the open you can get back on & keep going. In stadium if you fall anywhere you get eliminated.
