While those of us up here in the Northern Hemisphere are trudging through the doldrums of winter, event season in Australia is just getting started. Yesterday, Olympian Megan Jones hosted a cross country derby open to all ages and levels at her and husband James Deacon’s Hallmark Farm in South Australia.
The competition attracted one particularly eager and excited young eventer: Clancy and his pony, Oscar. Enjoy this post-ride interview with Clancy, a few pictures, and a quick clip of their round.
May we all greet the week with the energy and excitement that young Clancy brings to his endeavors.
