Thursday Video: Steeplechase Ponies Steal the Show at Devon

If you loved the video of this year’s Shetland Grand National at Badminton, you have to watch the Shetland Pony Steeplechase from the Devon Horse Show. The races, new for 2014, are a stop on the Washington International Horse Show Shetland Pony Steeplechase Championship Series.

Held in the Dixon Oval, spectators were treated to a wild ride, especially when a particularly naughty pony named Leo the Magnificent dumped his rider and still tried to win the race!
