Thursday Video: One Way To Tackle a Bank

Move over, chestnut horse leaping a ditch… we’ve found our new favorite event horse to watch.

One of the many things we love about Laine Ashker as an eventer in the social media age is her willingness to share the less-than-pretty moments with good grace and good humor — because she understands, like we do, that we’ve all been there. Horse life is messy, unpredictable and definitely has its fair share of SMH/LOL/OMG moments, whether you’re an amateur or a professional.

That’s why we’ve fallen head over heels for Laine Ashker’s new ride Debakey, a four year old Holsteiner gelding owned by Lena Perger. His latest adventure — his unique take on a bank — has the internet in stitches:

(Don’t worry, Ashker confirmed that Debakey was totally fine.) He was also pretty fun to watch when he saw his first skinny and chevron…

If you’re scratching your head right now, fear not — here’s Debakey on something he has a bit more experience with, demonstrating the springs in his feet.

Debakey, you’re a Horse Nation hero (and so are you, Laine, for sticking to him like Velcro). Go riding!
