British YouTube vlogger This Esme recently took a big trip to the Land Down Under where she not only attended the Australian International Three-Day Event in Adelaide, but also paid a visit to Kirby Park Stud, which is home to five-star eventer Megan Jones.
Megan and her own Kirby Park Irish Jester were members of the Australian Team for the 2006 World Equestrian Games in Aachen, Germany where they won team bronze as well as the 2008 Beijing Olympics where they placed fourth individually and won team bronze. Since then, Megan has bene a main-stay amidst Australia’s elite even rider population.
This video is an enjoyable in-depth look into Megan’s operation. From the paddocks, to the arena (there’s a very cool jump-building idea there!), to the tack room, new additions to the barn, the lorry, and of course an up-close look at her Olympic medals (did you know that there is jade embedded in the Beijing Olympic medals, and that it was mined in Australia?) — Esme and Megan cover it all!
