You don’t want to miss this, EN! Buck Davidson and Kyle Carter are launching a new eventing show on YouTube to engage fans and generate buzz about competitions. The Sort of OK Show About Horses with Buck & Kyle will offer pre-event analysis on many of the big events throughout the year, as well as a post-show recap.
