Most of us fondly remember Theodore O’Connor as a wonderpony–which he totally was. Like any pony, however, when he was good he was very good. But when he was bad…
An introduction, from the video’s poster: “This is part one of two posted by Sportponies Unlimited: dressage at the Red Hills CCI***W. After earning a 29.6 in Advanced at Rocking Horse, followed by a 33-point-something (I think) in OI at Rocking Horse, the little snit proceeded to explode multiple times at Red Hills, earning a blisteringly non-competitive 69.8 to place a something like third from last. He did, however, redeem himself somewhat in stadium (after two not-really-his-fault, tough-course refusals on x-c) by having one of very, very few double clear rounds.”
Note to readers: There’s a bit of adult language in the video from the videographer, who seems rather shocked at Teddy’s naughty behavior.
Ponies–gotta love ’em! Or you’d probably kill ’em.
