World Horse Welfare Pamela, an 8.3 hand rescued Shetland pony, is set to become the smallest-ever Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials competitor. Supported by equestrian icons with her “star rider” yet to be revealed, the #BurghleyPony’s journey to four-star fame has been documented by a series of behind-the-scenes training videos released in the leadup to the event.
This week her training continued via a show jumping masterclass with Tim Stockdale, who remarked after the session: “It makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up — the majesty of her jump, the power, the grace … it’s fabulous equine magnificence.”
Yogi Breisner also stepped up with a last-minute pep talk for the horse, taking her tiny nose in his hands as he imparted his wisdom:
We can’t wait to see where all of this is going, and our own Jenni Autry will be at Burghley this week to provide a firsthand report!
Go #BurghleyPony. Go Eventing.
