Sunday Video: Throwback to 1993 Blair Castle Horse Trials

EN’s good friend David Robinson, better known as harveywetdog on YouTube, has been digging through his archives and uploading old videos from horse trials. This time, he’s uploaded video from the 1993 Blair Castle Horse Trials featuring Pippa Funnell, Rodney Powell, Leslie Law, Matt Ryan, Rachel Robley and many others.

Watch part 1 above for cross country highlights and part two below for show jumping, awards and the tradition of wellie throwing. Rodney Powell won that year aboard Comic Relief when the event was still just a CCI2*, one year before David O’Connor won with Lightfoot. We’d love to see video of David’s win!

Blair Castle is hosting the 2015 FEI European Eventing Championships for the first time on Sept. 10-13 this year. You can click here for much more on Blair 2015 and here to buy tickets.
