    Default McLain and Antares F

    I just want to say that everytime I see photos of them all I can think is "WOW". The photos from the Alltech Grand Prix were just amazing. What a jump and McLain has such amazing eq.

    That horse could not possibly jump better. His front end and Mclain's eq are the epitome of what we all strive for

    Amazing horse! I love how well he uses his knees and how well put together he is. I hope to see him in person someday.

    The horse's jumping form and McLain's eq are both absolutely textbook perfect! What an awesome pair!

    Whenever I work on equitation, I always tell my self that I'm channelling my inner McClain. . Love his riding.

    I watched them last night, first time I'd seen them together.
    Antares is a beautiful animal, they do make a perfect pair.

    Loved them at the Royal and was so sorry they did not make it to the jump off.

    McLain is one of my favourite Grand Prix riders, and he and Antares make such an amazing team I was on edge this past Saturday at the Royal, and incredibly disappointed that they didn't advance to the jump-off.

    He is a great ambassador for our sport - not only a great rider, but also a great horseman who genuinely cares about his horses.
