Horse Vlog: NEddiesGun

About the Vlog

Lauren is an Irish equestrian living and working in Dubai. She’s been vlogging for almost a decade, so her viewers are able to follow her entire journey to becoming a professional equine sports therapist, animal chiropractor, and show jumper. I’ve been watching this channel for years, and it’s well worth your time!

I’ve learned so much from watching Lauren’s lesson raws and especially love her trainer’s calm ‘No problem!’ vibe while teaching.

Key Players

  • Lauren: She runs the channel and is the main rider/narrator.
  • Boo: Think of her as the equine matriarch of Lauren’s herd. She’s a talented jumper, trick horse, and all-around love.
  • Gabbana: She’s Lauren’s up-and-coming horse and is going to (hopefully) become her next upper-level jumper.
  • Fernanda: Lauren purchased this lovely grey Zangersheide mare as an unbroken three year old in 2020.
  • Urano: He’s Lauren’s upper-level jumper, so you’ll see show videos of him frequently.
  • River: You’ll see her in earlier jumping videos, but River is now a broodmare at a friend’s facility.
  • Ocèana: Lauren’s homebred filly out of River is a beautiful bay with a tiny white star.
  • Naiger: Not owned by Lauren, but he’s a gelding Lauren rides and shows for a friend.
  • Silver: Not owned by Lauren, but he’s a dressage horse who is now learning to jump.
  • Berrie: This adorable mini Pomeranian is Lauren and her boyfriend’s dog. He loves coming to the barn!

  1. Lauren is professional, fun-loving, and dedicated rider and narrator.
  2. She’s close friends with equestrian vloggers Holly Lenahan, Gezzcannez, and AlfusAlly, so you’ll enjoy videos of them riding together. Several of them even visited her in Dubai!
  3. She’s passionate about creating content that takes subscribers behind the scenes. You’ll see the ups and downs of each ride, not just an edited compilation of the “pretty pieces.” Lauren clearly knows we can learn as much (if not more) when things that don’t go as planned.
  4. You can learn from many lessons, shows, schooling raws, and voiceovers. (These are my favorite videos.)

  6. You’ll love watching Lauren’s newest mare Gabbana move up the levels and settle into life in Dubai.
  7. Her horse Boo is an incredible jumper and even learned to do trick riding with Lauren. She also typically rides Boo bitless, so you can learn more about that on her channel.
  8. Urano is a high-level jumper who is a challenging and powerful ride, so you’ll learn a lot from how Lauren handles his lessons and shows.
  9. Lauren talks through her specialities of bodywork, stretching, water therapy, and chiropractic adjustments.
