#EventerProblems Vol. 277: Meet U.S. Eventing’s TikTok Superstar

With over 29,000 followers, eventer Amanda lo Cousins of ACE Equestrian in Hume, Virginia is nailing it with her TikTok account (@pewpewsnponies). By turns hilarious and inspiring, we’ve loved following her adventures with Duncan, her 9-year-old Thoroughbred gelding (Bellamy Road x Dontstealmythunder). After a very nearly spotless cross country record together (what a cross country machine!)…

@pewpewsnponies what a horse #horsesoftiktok #equestrian ♬ Whatever It Takes – Imagine Dragons

… Amanda broke and I mean REALLY broke) her arm when her horse had a bobble (but she didn’t fall off!) in the two-star at Great Meadow in August, and very sensibly retired on course. We wish Amanda a speedy recovery and thank her for keeping all our spirits high.
