THE FINAL COUNTDOWN

The Asmar WEG Challenge comes to an end today. Since BO and I didn’t catch wind of the contest until they were on their 3rd challenge (eventing)), we went back for some extra credit and submitted videos for the first two, dressage and vaulting, and then also submitted our entry for the last challenge, para-equestrian.

Let’s take a look back, shall we?

Here was mine for eventing, where you needed to multi-task and perform 3 tasks at the same time. My submission included my absolute saint of a horse who had never dragged anything that was attached to him before. Please also note that I’m on him bareback.

And BO’s submission (which won because it was so damn funny!):

Then the Endurance challenge, which said to complete as many jumping jacks as you could in one minute (I won this one!). BO’s husband in the t-rex costume still makes me laugh everytime I see it:

And then show-jumping, which is still my all-time favorite. You had to show your most creative jump, and nothing is more creative than a half-dino costume with a large former-Marine screaming at you in his wife’s riding tights. Asmar contacted me after we submitted that and said while it was their favorite, we had already won twice so we couldn’t win anymore. Understandable, but we were having so much fun making the videos, we continued on.

Then there was reining, where you needed to perform 8 spins on or off a horse as fast as you could. So we got the group together (BO and both our husbands) and beat each other with inflatable baseball bats.

For the para-equestrian challenge, the directions were to perform a task with your non-dominant hand.

BO is a good sport. I had to get to my son’s football practice, so she donated her face for this cause:

Then BO coerced one of our other friends (who is too flexible for her own good) for the vaulting challenge. And she KILLED IT.

And then created an 80’s-crossed-with-Halloween workout video for the dressage challenge, which said to show off your most creative dressage-inspired dance moves.

No idea what we’ll do with ourselves now that the contest series is over.
