Welcome to Throwback Thursday! Each Thursday, we will be bringing you some vintage eventing photos and posts. Do you want to show us your first horse or a photo of your early riding days? Email [email protected].
The 2014 edition of NAJYRC is officially upon us, with all horses passing the first horse inspection yesterday. Dressage officially kicked off this morning, with the CH-J* first in the arena. With that in mind, we decided to bring you a special trivia edition of Throwback Thursday – and yes, we’ve got a fantastic prize lined up for the winner!
Last year, Caroline Martin and Quantum Solace were the CH-Y** winners, taking home the top individual honors as well as helping Area III win the team gold. The footage above, provided by RNS Video, highlights Caroline’s winning weekend. The answers to our questions can be found both by watching the video as well as checking out the NAJYRC website here. Post your answers (one per person, please) in the comments and check back later for the answers. One lucky winner will be randomly selected from the pool of correct answers to receive the prize!
On the line this week is an Ice Horse Emergency Wrap generously provided by our sponsor, Ice Horse. This easy to use product is perfect for cooling hard to reach areas such as shoulders, fetlocks, or necks. The Emergency Wrap is reusable, using First+Ice® packs to mold to the application area for maximum cooling effect. Our horses are supreme athletes, and there is no better way to treat bumps and bruises or cool off after a workout than this awesome product. Get to guessing, and this wrap could be yours!
Best of luck, and happy guessing.
1. What was Caroline’s dressage score in the CH-Y**?
2. How many riders produced double clear show jumping rounds in the CH-Y**? Name them!
3. Who took home the individual gold in the CH-J*, and by how many points did they win?

Classic pictures and videos are priceless, but today’s innovations make it so much easier to keep our horses feeling and performing their best. They may be black and white, but Ice Horse’s line of products deliver a full spectrum of cold therapy.
