Over the ditch brush again...

To anybody who's ever said an ex-racehorse can't make an eventer, I have but one message for you...

Bwahahahahaha! XD

A year and 4 months off the track, and look at him. In a place he's never been before, a high-level jump he's never seen, and he flies straight over first time...
Where did I go right? :P

WOAH! He's giving that plenty of room, he looks like he's going places. The thing with racehorses is that they usually jump extremely well and have a lot of stamina and athleticism so they make the perfect eventers.

So true! :D I love my little racehorses, as eventers and as jumpers! They're fantastic. :)

Breezing Hill  
Before the FEI and Olympic committee replaced the Long format with the current day 3 day event, OTTBs were really the only choice that eventers used (at least they were extremely popular in the US). WBs were not able to keep up with the endurance that eventing demanded. Now more effort is made on getting a good dressage horse to place higher since the roads and tracks and gallop sets and steeple chase were taken out. But they are starting to make a comeback.
I personally love eventing TBs. They are much easier to keep in shape and get into shape. They also have a little bit more heart, IMO, then most WBs.

OTTBs make great eventers :D Jock Paget's Olympic mount this year (Clifton Promise) was an unsuccessful racehorse here in New Zealand. I think he's a grandson of the American horse Alydar.
