Thursday Video from Standlee Hay: Universe Shows His Chops in the Jumper Ring

Just when we thought Clark Montgomery’s four-star partner Universe (“Buzz”) couldn’t get any cooler, he recently crushed it in two 1.40 meter classes at HITS. The 16-year-old Dutch gelding, whose myriad accomplishments include jumping handily around Pau and Badminton in 2013, is the consummate example of an all-around equine athlete.

Clark shared the videos with the remark, “To come back at the age of 16 from two-year injury and competing at the four-star level in eventing to jumping two 1.40 classes this week just tells you how much heart and try this little horse has. More than any other horse I’ve had the privilege of riding.”

Go Buzz. Go Eventing!
