I looovvee watching this partnership. Cara is an incredibly challenging ride, but an equally talented jumper. Pair that with Therese’s uncanny ability to see every distance (#envious), and this channel is a must-have on your playlist.
- Therese: She runs the channel and is the main rider/narrator.
- Cara: This “lost cause mare” has completely transformed with Therese’s help over the years. She is one of the most talented and enthusiastic jumpers (in a small package!) that I’ve ever seen.
- Santo: RIP to Therese’s heart horse prior to Cara. He was also an amazing jumper and was essential to building Therese’s confidence as a rider.
