If Laine Ashker runs cross country without a Go Pro, do the officials even count it? At this point, I feel like it would be such a disservice to society that it should be as mandatory as a cross country vest. People need their Sunday helmet cam fix, girl.
Fortunately, it seems Laine has no intention of slowing her production regardless, and today brings us a quality helmet cam from the Waredaca HT, where her OTTB Call Him Paddy made his preliminary debut.
Laine is positively crazy about this horse, and it’s easy to see why. The pair put in a cool 29 in dressage and added just a point in time penalties on the beautiful and diverse Waredaca XC course to finish in third place.
The horse was originally a Retired Racehorse Project acquisition for Laine and her mother Valerie Ashker, and has really blossomed over this season. Paddy has springs for days, and the pair have high hopes for him as an upper level horse.
Paddy also put in a double clear show jumping round at Waredaca this weekend, and the Ashker film crew was on full duty!
Thanks as always for sharing the talents of your horses with the world, Lainey, and Go Eventing!
