Horse Vlog: Elphick Event Ponies

About the Vlog

We could watch Megan Elphick produce and compete her British ponies all day long. From dressage to stadium jumping, cross country to road hacks with her mom, these vlogs pull you in more with every clip. #justsubscribe

If you want to see true sport ponies excel in eventing, Elphick Event Ponies is a must-watch channel. Megan clearly loves every member of her herd and never cuts corners in their care or training.

Key Players

  • Megan: She runs the channel, is the main rider/narrator, and competes as an amateur eventer.
  • Megan’s Mom: Always by her daughter’s side (especially in the lorry on the way to shows), she’s a smiley and supportive horsey helper.
  • Bear: A busy-minded dappled dun, mare Bear has boundless potential (even if she is a tad spooky!). 
  • Lara: This lovely paint mare has a distinctive half-white face that wins as many hearts as it does ribbons.
  • Dee: Especially popular on Megan’s Instagram, princess Dee is a grey mare with a big personality. 
  • Efa: Pronounced “eee-fa,” this dark bay mare is a newer addition who is quickly making a name for herself in the jump ring. (Now sold!)
  • Jam: This dapple grey youngster is increasing her training, and we’ll see a lot more of her!
  • Jaffa: Found at a Welsh horse sale, this adorable red pony with his wide blaze and four stockings is the newest addition.
  • Dora: She’s the cutest dapple grey filly you’ve ever seen, and Meg bought her sight-unseen from Ireland.

  8. Megan is honest about what she does want to do (e.g. produce solid eventing ponies) and doesn’t want to do (e.g. rise up the levels to the Olympics).
  9. One word: Bear 🙂 This little dappled pocket rocket is a fan favorite for good reason. 
  10. Out on cross country, Megan sports an air vest for safety (and has used it!). (Learn more about equestrian air vests in our detailed review.)
