Monday Video: Baby’s First Cross Country

If we were to measure how much we love a helmet cam by the number of “Good boys!” (or girls!) the rider shouts, then this one easily makes the top rankings. Honestly though, is there anything more heartwarming than a little baby event horse trying his heart out during his first cross country run?

Three-and-a-half-year-old Chilli Star (Coronado x A Bid For Stardom xx), an Oldenburg/ Thoroughbred bred and owned by Michelle Green at Hidden Creek Ranch Sporthorses, took on his first event at Majestic Oaks HT this weekend. With Jennarose Ortmeyer in the irons, “Legs” had a wonderfully positive experience competing in the starter division, his ears pricked the whole way ’round the course. Young Chilli Star is entered in the 2023 US Event Horse Futurity, and we look forward to following his progress!
