YouTube sensation Valentina Cowgirl is best known for her love of Western riding, so a visit to the recent Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ event in Ocala was something completely new!
The social media star, who has had more than 3.5m YouTube views, made a special vlog for the FEI's YouTube channel documenting her trip to the famous American equestrian venue earlier this month.
"I've never been to an 'English' show, I've never seen 'English' riders compete," says Valentina Cowgirl - AKA Cindy Valentina - at the start. "I'm so, so excited! I'm a Western rider, so I want to see how different it is."
Cindy is soon mingling with the crowds at Ocala and is absolutely wowed by the size of the fences the Jumping horses must overcome.
"This is insane!" she says.
"Can you imagine how athletic the horses have to be to jump these? They are so much bigger than they look on TV"
After being thrilled by the competition, Cindy catches up with the shock winner of the event, 17-year-old Brian Moggre.
