Welcome to Horse & Hound's dressage editor Alice Collins' video diary. Alice and 'Fab' are competing in the Petplan Equine medium restricted Area Festival Final at the 2015 NAF Five Star British Dressage Winter Dressage Championships
“She goobered in my eye! Stop filming!” “Don’t bite me!” “I haven’t pressed record!”
Check out the bloopers from Horse & Hound dressage editor Alice Collins’ Hartpury dressage championships video blog which include her chasing after the lorry, driving Fab’s ears like a motorbike, dropping things and demonstrating how not to hose a horse off.
The quirky but loveable little horse has accrued a multitude of fans online over the past week and she bids farewell in this final Petplan Equine Area Festival finals video blog instalment.
Alice reports that Fab has big plans despite her small size. And, who knows, she may qualify for the advanced medium Petplan Equine Area Festival final next year and entertain the internet once again…
