And he did it with his own tail! Lol.
I own a sibling… and Osczar definitely got the good genes
Love my girl, aaaand… she doesn’t jump like that. (I’m sure she’d say that I don’t ride like that, either!)
How funny, I was JUST thinking about this video yesterday and how it’s about time to watch it again. Stunning. Thanks for posting!
Our Alla’Czars have been my favorite horses of all time! I still have my 23 year old who is the spitting image of his sire. We’ve had 6 in total - 4 jumpers, 1 3 ring horse, and one dressage horse - and I just got my hands on a straw of semen for my Hampton x Bonheur filly and I cannot wait for that baby!! My favorite stallion of all time <3
Such a lovely, happy horse. He looked so keen and relaxed. One that seemed very much to enjoy his job.
Thanks for the link @MHM.
wow what a lovely lovely horse! Scopey isn’t the word
He had that rare cat-like lightness and refinement that was so prevalent in yesteryears’ TB hunters (Alla Czar was 3/4 Thoroughbred) and seriously lacking in the hunters today.
No performative riding there either - he was truly getting jumped out of the tack (I know that feeling on the backside ).
Love the no martingale, no fake tail. It’s actually all about the performance of the horse.
Ooh, you have GOT to update us when that one happens!
Honestly I am confused. It’s not a pretty ride.
@pony_grandma Please explain how this horse could have jumped better.
Yeah, I had to watch it again and I can’t fault him anywhere in any way. He flows like water, snaps his knees and hind end,mand clears everything by a mile. Just beautiful.
Tell me what I missed.
Why do they say on the video that the score was 97 or 98 point something?
I thought it was a lovely round.
Capital Challenge has multiple judges in each class, and they each give separate scores which are averaged out to a total. So he got a score of 100 from one judge, and probably scores in the upper 90s from the other judges.
Oh, thank you. Now I get it.
