SpectraVET Classic Performance of the Week: Showjumping in the ’60s

Check out this fun vintage video featuring a young Beethoven, who would go on to win gold at the World Championships at La Boule in 1970.

From the video description:

A look at Show jumping in the 1960’s featuring Douglas Bunn buying his famous horse Beethoven. Beethoven remains to this day the only British horse to ever be crowned World Champion, when David Broome rode him to victory at La Baule in 1970.

I especially like the parts about the cost of riding at that time, when a complete riding habit could set you back 30 pounds ($50) and “saddles could cost up to 55 pounds” ($90). Wow!
