Ask a Non-Rider: Cross country commentary

Ask a Non-Rider: Cross country commentary

SARAH: Based on this preview screen we got
coming up, what do you think we’re in for in this one? JESSE: Oh. SARAH: Talk to me about that “oh.” JUAN: This is the ones that require that special
vest on this one, cause it’s much more brutal. MARY: I’d say the girl picking her wedgie
is a little bit awkward. MATT: They’re probably going to be chasing
a fox or something. Chasing animals. JESSE: Richard Gere. Runaway Bride. That’s kind of what I’m seeing. SARAH: Have you ever tried one of those vests? JUAN: I actually did. I worked an event at Rolex, and I tried one
on while we were testing it out for customers. JESSE: Is this more of an off-road kind of
park? MATT: Is this one of those fox hunts where
they let some animal go and then they chase it down? JESSE: I see some logs over here. Looks much more difficult than plastic gates. JUAN: Although it wasn’t pleasant, I can see
the benefits of not breaking your neck. SARAH: Yeah, sure. JESSE: Maybe there are some trenches that
we have to jump over, so… JUAN: That gets in the way of your day. SARAH: Pros and cons. Yeah. These are some great guesses. JESSE: Yeah. Looks a little more aggressive. SARAH: Let’s go ahead and get this one started
and tell us what we’re seeing. MATT: Is that hunting and jumping? JUAN: Is this somebody I know? SARAH: Hunter/Jumpers is a little bit different. JESSE: That was too easy to start. MARY: I see a vest and no jacket. JESSE: Jumped over some bushes, that’s nice. MARY: The vest on the other one might have
been under the jacket. JUAN: Oh, I thought she was going to jump
over that. JESSE: I like when they camouflage the jumps,
I’m sure the horses do, too. SARAH: That one not impressive?
JUAN: No. MARY: A little bit low, but… JESSE: Makes it a little more challenging… MARY: She’s just getting warmed up. JUAN: Who’s that lady out in the background? She’s not even paying attention to the horse. MATT: Ok, it’s trail riding. JESSE: Is this supposed to interpret something
that horses used to do? SARAH: Trail riding tends to be a little bit
more leisurely than this. JESSE: Seems like we’ve made something that
sounds very leisurely a little aggressive. MATT: He seems to be in a great hurry to get
to where he needs to go. JUAN: There’s no hunting allowed, by the way. JESSE: I know I don’t want my wife telling
me to jump stuff when we go through the woods. SARAH: That’s good cause these are not the
hunters. MATT: That wasn’t that high of a wall. I would expect the walls to be like twice
as high. JESSE: I also don’t take SmartPak supplements,
so maybe… SARAH: Maybe that would help. JESSE: It might help. SARAH: What do you think this might be called? JUAN: Three-day eventing? SARAH: Very good! MARY: Fun Outdoors-y Woodland Jumping? JESSE: Robin Hood Olympics. SARAH: You and Squish go hiking, do you think
this is the kind of activity you guys might do? JUAN: That’s my friend, Jen Bags! SARAH: Yes it is. MARY: Well, Squish is too low to the ground
to ride around on, but… MATT: She seems to be doing pretty well. JUAN: I might know the name of this horse. MATT: No errors that I can note. JUAN: The name of that horse is “I Don’t Know.” MATT: I would like them to go faster, because
I like things to go fast. SARAH: Starts with a ‘T.’
JUAN: No, no, it’s “I Don’t Know.” JESSE: Dressage is something that sounds fancier
than what this is. JUAN: If you check that saddle pad, the monogram
is IDK. JESSE: So this might not be that, if that
makes as much sense to you as it does to me. JUAN: There’s a person there to catch Jen. MARY: So much lush foliage. Yes, oh – is that bad? MATT: It’d be great if they jumped through
fire. SARAH: Because it touched? MARY: Yeah. I guess they didn’t hit any wood. MATT: Do they ever have people who do tricks
and balance on horses? SARAH: Yes. JESSE: Doesn’t look like they had too much
for breakfast, which is always helpful to the horse. MATT: Trick riding is absolutely a thing. MARY: They’re jumping over a little house! JUAN: Over a little housey, that’s cute. MARY: Big house, like a church.
Wow. SARAH: It is big. MARY: That was fun, lots of different jumps. JESSE: Big fan of the cross-country. SARAH: Love it. What did you think of that performance overall? MATT: It was smashing. SARAH: Oh, that’s very British. Now we’re seeing your heritage come out. JESSE: Looks like they did very well there. Didn’t look lost, I didn’t see any 180s going
the wrong way, no backward horse moves. I think overall they did pretty well. SARAH: Yeah, you liked the variety. MARY: Yes. It wasn’t in like a…thing. SARAH: Mm hmm. Not in an arena. MARY: Yeah, that’s the word. JESSE: The cross country is definitely something
that I would watch. MARY: More outdoors-y stuff, like the horse
could probably get a little more confused with that, right? I was a little confused. And when the girl was picking her wedgie,
I was all thrown off. SARAH: Fun fact, she works in the Merchandising
department. She also works at our retail store in Natick. She has a wonderful little dog named Chappy. MATT: Jen Bagley? MARY: I do believe that’s Jen Bagley. SARAH: That is accurate. MARY: That’s right! MATT: Oh yeah, now I recognize her. SARAH: Yeah. MATT: Is she going to be mad about all the
things I said about her horse? SARAH: I don’t think so. You said very complimentary things about that
horse. That was her horse, Tally. They were doing cross country. JESSE: Cross country, ok. SARAH: Also known as the Robin Hood Olympics
from now on, I think. JESSE: Theoretically, right? SARAH: What was your favorite part? MARY: The wedgie was a highlight. JUAN: Least favorite part? That it’s ending. SARAH: Ohhhhhh. JUAN: I wish I could do more. SARAH: I appreciate that. Maybe we’ll have you back for another one. JUAN: I hope so.
