Oliver Townend, meet adoring teens

A fun little video, where two teens meet eventer Oliver Townend and ask him about his roots. The theme is, you don't have to be "posh" to make it in the horse world. :-) If nothing else the video reminded me that the word posh is woefully underutilized in this country.

  1. OOH-la-la... I didn't even know that Boyd Martin has a rival in the Handsome, Well-Accented Top Event Rider department! Gracious me. At any rate, I'm surprised those young ladies were not more tongue-tied (I know I'd be and I'm much older, LOL) and were able to get some great background on Mr. Townend. It seems like a lot of riders do bootstrap their way up the ladder - not everyone is Jessica Springsteen (although she has actually worked quite hard, too)!

  2. Proof that if you want something badly enough, you Will find a way to get it, do it or have it. Awesome for him.
