Holy bridleless jumping! This is taking No-Stirrup November to another level. Elisa Wallace sent us this picture of her and her Mustang mare, Hwin, getting some serious airtime. Elisa said, “She’s a 5 yo that I’ve had for 5 weeks from the wild. I’m competing with her in the Mustang Magic extreme makeover in Fort Worth, TX in January. I’m documenting her journey. I think she might like to jump ;)” Many thanks to Pam Doughty for the great photo of this adorable mare.

No kidding! You can keep up with Elisa and her fabulous Mustangs on Facebook. We wish Elisa and Hwin the best of luck in January, though they already look like they can handle any challenge thrown their way!

Runner chases down police horse on foot: In a story that sounds like something out of a buddy-cop movie, an innocent runner was enjoying an evening workout in London when all of a sudden, a horse came thundering by. It was a riderless police horse that had been spooked by a nearby firework. The runner took off in hot pursuit, alerting emergency services during his mad dash to catch up with the horse. “The operator had to ask me to stop running so she could hear me properly,” he said.
