Has anyone seen this? I know I have heard of this horse before, but the ASHA should be promoting the heck out of this horse.
This is Aerialist, Alexandre Nevidonski riding Mammuth (American Saddlebred)

I tried to find him and couldn't. Is he registered? Who owns him? Did you send this to ASHA?

That horse is just the greatest. What a champ!!!! The man was sl elegant. That is a beautiful presentation that they have. I love it!!! I never heard of this before, but we need to learn more about this amazing team.

Betsy Battista, who used to be at Equine Affaire as the Program Director, discovered this act for them. She's also a huge ASB fan. I remember a conversation that we had and that the horse is a full ASB and *may* be registered under another name. I'll call her and ask if she remembers.
She's Snow Angel

We saw this team in Phizer Fantasia, 2006, in Ohio. Afterward we talked to Alexandre along the rail. He didn't know much about Mammuths background. Of course it could have been the language barrier, too.
Heres a link to some pics my daughter took with her old camera, so they arent great.

This footage and the other footage posted under another topic that featured a dressage ASB would be of great interest to the Saddlebred Museum for our 2010 special exhibit. If anyone has connections as far as locating this footage and the permission to use it in our exhibit please let me know. Our 2010 exhibit (during WEG) will feature all aspects of the American Saddlebred and we are actively searching for footage. Thank you.

Kim - do you have the footage of the Scripps horses from Nagano (as well as their multiple Rose Parade appearances)?

I spoke to the rider after the OH 2006 performance. I asked where he got his horse and he told me NY but couldn't come up with a name. I was thinking to myself that it could be from Hallston Manor but that is solely speculation on my part. The horse was just unflappable! Very much the kind of ambassador we need to dispel the many myths surrounding our breed. Wouldn't it be great to have him perform in exhibition in 2010 ???
