A Tribute to the Thoroughbred Sport Horse


A narrated video presentation celebrating the extraordinary contribution the Thoroughbred horse has made in all the jumping disciplines. Until the very recent past Thoroughbreds dominated North America’s competitive jumping scene with their superior athleticism, heart and jumping prowess. Their popularity sadly declined as warmbloods descended en masse upon the horse show industry beginning in the early 1980s. Thoroughbreds seemed to virtually disappear as seemingly “easy-going” warmbloods gained momentum and cachet. This video is a reminder that some of our most outstanding and beloved equine athletes of all time were proudly Thoroughbreds. Not only should we remember their profound influence, but applaud and encourage their reemergence into the mainstream of the equestrian sport.
