1994 Breeders' Cup Classic + Post Race [10:15]
The Breeders' Cup horse that arrived last at Churchill Downs ran first Saturday as Concern beat Tabasco Cat by a neck in the $3-million Classic, ending on a high note a long year of unfulfilled promise for the 3-year-old colt from Maryland. Trainer Dick Small's style is to ship a horse to a race at a late hour, and by van instead of plane. He made no exception with Concern, even though the late-running son of Broad Brush was appearing in the most important stake of his 21-race career. A 10 1/2-hour trip brought Concern and the trainer to Kentucky at 3 am Friday, long after all the other Breeders' Cup horses had settled in and been tested during workouts over the Churchill Downs track. Concern did all of his Breeders' Cup preparations at Pimlico, where he worked a mile on Monday. "I find that most horses do better in their own surroundings," Small said. "It's better not to disrupt their daily rhythms." Small played it even closer to the vest when Concern ran in the Travers in August. For that race, the horse was driven to Upstate New York and arrived at 4 am on the day of the race, about 13 hours before post time. He lost by a neck to Holy Bull, the probable horse of the year who didn't run in the Breeders' Cup. Being beaten by necks and running second and third have been Concern's style, a rut that ended in time for his owner-breeder, Robert Meyerhoff, to collect a purse of $1.56 million, more than half a million dollars more than his colt had earned from all his previous ...

TV spot equestrian sports 2012 "At the Heart of Passion" [00:31]
Longines sweeps you deep into the heart of the equestrian action in which it is today passionately involved. Its new commercial was shot in the grandiose setting of the Chantilly Racecourse, where Longines is the official timekeeper and where the Prix de Diane Longines is staged. Film director Cyril Clapin's camera takes you backstage for the weighing-in, where the jockeys fine-tune their concentration, and into the stalls where the horses themselves are being readied. From the palpable tension prior to a race to the collective shiver at the starting gun, you'll live the dramatic seconds ticked off by the race chronograph and experience the beauty and power of the galloping horses. Jockey and mount are then but one... Celebrating its 180th anniversary in 2012, Longines is the invaluable partner of the world's most celebrated horse races.

The Levade - Henry preforms the Levade and rears on command [03:39]
Henry rearing on command on the ground, with a rider and preforming the Levade. PLEASE READ BELOW to see how I trained him to do this. The clips and some of the pics are older. I will post more recent stuff when I can. ~~~ I started on the lunge line with him, I noticed if I had him face me and shook the whip at his legs he would jump up a bit and take off. I used this to my advantage by stopping him if he ran and praising him for the upward jump. I then combined that with the word UP he caught on right away the first time we worked on it. He learned to do a small rear in about a weeks time. I used a whip to signal him and the motion of my body towards him and with my arms up. Soon he would preform for both the word and the motion. He went higher as we kept practicing. I also would tap him on the legs occasionally with the whip if he was not going as high as before. If I would swing the whip at him the same way with out taping him he would also get the hint to go higher. ~~~ To get him to do it while ridden I took the whip and moved it up in the air near his head where he could see it and kept the word UP with it. He figured this out in 1 day as well. After that it was just a lot of practice to make it better. Now I can signal him with the word, the whip, or the motion of my arms all while on his back. ~~~ The Levade I did not train him for this in the traditional way. I took his rearing and asked him for collection and a head set while giving the command to rear. I did ...
