Friday Video from SmartPak: Party Mode Activated

Our Friday video this week comes to us courtesy of British eventer Harriet Upton, who represented Team GB at the 2014 Junior European Championships. Then, we saw her partner with 2012 Olympics veteran Carraigh Dubh, the great grey gelding she bought for a whopping 90p. Never the most straightforward horse, Danny obviously taught Harriet a thing or two about getting the very best from a horse with, um, an opinion or two! Now, Harriet’s burgeoning string (which includes two horses owned by none other than Her Majesty, the Queen of England!) is headed up by the talented Kilkenny Lady, who might just be the dictionary entry for ‘chestnut mare.’

Check out this fab compilation that Harriet put together, showing some of her mega mare’s best dance moves. Harriet and Rosie will be stepping up to four-star this year after a successful season at Advanced last year — these two are definitely a pair to keep an eye on (and not just for the above!) Turns out the upper levels ARE one big party … who’d have guessed?! (Also, check out that smile — it never budges. New life motto? #BeMoreHarriet!)
