Emerald Downs - But thats WHO WE ARE [00:48]
Well, what can I say. I simply adore this video. Ive been meaning to construct a tribute for my beloved Emerald Downs for a while now, and here it is. I think it accurately depicts our struggle in a small racing community, but also our strength and perseverance in the grand sport of kings. I hope you guys enjoy. The clips are from Emerald Downs, though I do not own them, nor do I own the song. I just edited it :) Thanks for watching!

Men's pentathlon David Svoboda wins the gold - Summer Olympics 2012 in London (my response) [01:36]
(my response) David Svoboda of the Czech Republic won the modern pentathlon Saturday at the London Games after matching the Olympic record in the fencing event to open the competition. Svoboda, who won the European championship two years ago, led by just one second going into the final event, a combination of running and shooting. He briefly lost the lead after his main rival, Cao Zhongrong of China, was quicker to hit the five targets. Svoboda, however, regained the lead in the running part of the event, throwing his arms in the air to celebrate long before crossing the line. He finished with 5928 points to beat silver medalist Cao by 24 points. Adam Marosi of Hungary, the 2009 world champion, won bronze with 5836 points. ''In Beijing, I was fighting for the gold medal, but it all ended in disappointment,'' said Svoboda, who started as the favorite at the 2008 Olympics but finished 28th. ''So I decided to fight for gold again.'' Cao said he was ''quite happy'' with his performance after earning China's first medal in the event. ''To show your strength on the Olympic grandstand, that's great,'' Cao said through an interpreter. World champion Aleksander Lesun went into the final event in third place, but needed 10 shots to hit his five targets in his first shooting round. He lost too much time there to keep up with Svoboda and Cao, and finished fourth. Two-time defending champion Andrei Moiseev of Russia lost his chance at another gold, falling to sixth going into the ...

Demonstrating proper Equitation walk-trot [01:34]
Equitation is vital, especially in a show. It's just the "book" way of how you should look on a horse from the basics to the olympic levels. Walk- trot is simple. I listed some of the things that should be on your equitation checklist in the video. You'll also see a comment I included about making the horse work off her back end. As a horse is supposed to be balanced, the "power" should come from the back end. Keep contact in the front, but make sure your horse's hind end is always engaged. Another pointer... a sitting trot should be visibly slower than a rising or posting trot. while in the sitting trot, try not to bounce all over the saddle. Some horses are very bouncey. A way to strengthen yourself up to be able to handle this with good eq would be to try no stirrups. This strengthens your leg and teaches you not to rely on stirrups to balance you. Also lets you really get the feel of the horse's motion/
