No Bridle, No Problem for Elisa Wallace in Thoroughbred Makeover Freestyle Division

Elisa Wallace knows a thing or two about bringing the Thoroughbred Makeover Freestyle heat! She tied for 1st this year with Sir Teddy (Cashel Castle – Round Heels (IRE), by Daggers Drawn), a 2012 Illinois-bred OTTB whom you may have spotted out eventing at the Novice level of late under the name Fly With Me. The handsome grey, owned by Mike, Maddie and Michele Chisholm, also finished the eventing competition in 12th out of 97 competitors .

“Lear” looked cool as a cucumber when he entered the indoor (sans bridle!) to perform his Freestyle, with each move one-upping the next: side pass over a barrel …

… which then became a jump …

… and then she tooled around backwards for a bit …

… before flying with him over this jump …

… and a little more cantering backwards just to be sure …

… and finally, a well-deserved round of applause!

Watch their ride in its entirety:

What a performance — well played, you two. They returned for today’s finale which should be wrapping up at any moment, which means they’ll shortly be putting the finalists to an audience favorite vote! Keep an eye on the Retired Racehorse Project Facebook page for details. Go OTTBs. Go Eventing!

I’m so blessed to have had such an amazing team with me this weekend! #rrp #retiredracehorseproject2017
