Blast from the Past

While uploading some Pixio videos this week, I realized Connor's breeder still had all the old videos up of him from before I owned him - including the one from one of our first rides together, at a Welsh show.  Figured I'd share screenshots and links since surely nobody is actually doing any real work at work this week, right?

Yearling Connor

Five year old Connor

And of course, the video of Connor being driven and ridden in Pennsylvania that I have posted here before.

His driving trainers (Alli's bodyworker and saddle fitter, BTW, lol!) swear to this day they could still hitch him up and he'd do just fine.  I am terrified of driving so that's never going to happen unless they make it happen!


  1. As I prepare to take my first driving lesson next week, I just have to ask...why are you terrified of driving??

    1. There are so many more ways things can go wrong when you're in a cart vs. on their backs. Obviously a lot of people do it safely and enjoy it, but it just scares me.

    1. Lol, yes he is, hair is never something this horse has lacked.

  3. So cute! Aww he really is so much more MUSCULAR now!

    1. It's always there, just a bit shorter when he was younger.

  5. He looks like even more of a muscled hunk now compared to these videos!

  6. It's always nice to keep the older pictures and videos around
