2023 Readers’ Choice Awards: Kentucky Performance Products Video of the Year

The year that was… in video form! Check out our most popular videos of 2023 and vote for your favorite of the year.

At the end of each December, we at Horse Nation like to look back on the year that was and highlight the articles, essays and videos that most inspired readers, triggered important conversations or had everyone rolling on the floor with laughter — and then let readers decide which one is deserving of the title of the Best of the Year.

Our weekly Tuesday Video is a chance to take a look at the horse world and see the funny, crazy, eclectic, or just down-right-amazing things other equestrians are doing. Review our top five Tuesday Videos from 2023 and let us know which one was your favorite!

Extreme Outrider

Originally published on June 13, 2023

“On the track, one of the many tasks outriders have is to catch loose race horses buzzing around. This outrider makes not one but two ridiculous catches at the same time — really showibg off how great he and his mount are at their jobs.”

Walk Like an Equestrian

Originally published on May 30, 2023

“Even though non-horsey people like to lump equestrians into one big group, we all know that there is a huge difference between, say, someone who rides Dressage and a barrel racer. But how does one tell the difference? In this reel from gabriela.reutter makes it clear how you can tell equestrians apart just from how they walk.”

That’s Not How You Do It

Originally published on April 11, 2023

“This cowboy edition of TikTok’s ‘Dumb Ways to Die’ trend is sure to leave you flabbergasted. We’re not sure how this horseman missed his cow and caught himself instead, but it makes for one rank Tuesday video! Enjoy the talent behind this video. It’s not often that cowboys rope themselves.”

Wild Night

Originally published on March 21, 2023

“Well that’s a guilty face if we’ve ever seen one! Spilled trash, blankets everywhere, and horses with their heads stuck out of their stall door windows say it all! This horse had one wild night! But how could you be upset with that face?”

Originally published on March 2, 2o23

“Any good horse person worth their salt can chuck a bale of hay… or can they? Check out this hay bale throwing contest at the AG Olympics of the Jackson Heights Student Council. How do you think you’d fare?”
