Show jumping prodigy Reed Kessler was recently featured on the new Screen Test series by Noelle Floyd. Like all things by Floyd, it’s beautifully executed. It also makes for great GIFs.
These are Kessler’s top 12 quotes.
1. “I had a pony we got in Texas from a fruit cart for a $100—Sha Sha.”
2. “My mentor is Marcus Ehning.”
3. “I feel weird with my hair up…I have nothing to hide behind.”
4. “Sapphire and Cylana are really similarly bred…I think it would have been really cool if we could switch.”
5. “I love horses”
6. “I’m very competitive by nature.”
7. “Riding really defines me.”
8. “There’s no better feeling when you’re abroad and win and they raise the flag and play the anthem.”
9. “It’s a lot of pressure. But I enjoy doing it.”
10. “[Marcus Ehning] is really, really, really funny.”
11. “I’ve known since I was six years old that I wanted to go to the Olympics. I’d be totally lost without it.”
Conclusion: Reed Kessler is amazing. Amen.
