Citizens of EN, get ready for an off-the-charts level of cuteness.
Meet Chalupa Batman (yes, Chalupa Batman, a la The League) and his rider Abbey Clark, who contested the Junior Starter Novice division at the Heritage Park Horse Trials in Olathe, Kansas over the weekend. Chalupa is a 7-year-old Shetland Pony owned by Kris Wallace, head trainer and owner of Columbia Equestrian Center in Missouri.
Just look at how those tiny knees snap to his tiny nose over the fences, look at those little bitty lead changes, and check out how he takes those fences right out of stride. What a great team!
BONUS: Tiny dressage! I give them a 10 for cuteness.
Fly, Chalupa, fly — and may you impart a love of eventing upon all the children that you teach.
