Ecovet Presents Mind Your Melon: Ride Along on Helium

See what it’s like to ride a Derby contender.

The 147th running of the Kentucky Derby is only a week-and-a-half away. With some COVID-19 restrictions being eased, the run for the roses can be moved back to its traditional date of the first Saturday in May. That means the field is getting set and predictions are being made. But even if you don’t plan to place a bet, you can still see what it’s like to ride one of the contender (well, sort of… this probably isn’t exactly the same as actually galloping a racehorse).

So take a look (and imagine the feel) of riding Helium (Ironicus x Thundering Emelia, by Thuder Gulch).

Happy Wednesday, Horse Nation. Go riding and don’t forget to mind your melon!
