I uploaded a short video of my grandad's eight horse hitch yesterday, thought some of you might be interested in seeing it. Their sponsor for the last 20 years has decided to go in a different direction, and the video is intended to give perspective sponsors a bit of an idea of what they do. The video portion is taken during the 1996 AMHA Nationals when they went down and did a number of demos during the show.

Oh, that is SO much fun!!!
I want to drive a multiple hitch!!

I know I've been driving too long when during that video my whip hand was twitching wanting to get after that right leader and make him get up even with his partner.


Can you add some music to the portions of the video that don't have audio? I think it would help add appeal for prospective sponsors and make it more professional. You did a great job with the titles and transitions.

LOL! I chose this particular demo to use, for two reasons, one was part which we eventually chose to cut out, and the other for my adorable brother riding on the wagon who is now 18 years old and 6 feet tall. We watched it and realized that Bunky was hanging back ... which is completely unlike him! He's usually quite a goer, him and Gretz were the best lead team you could ever ask for. It's going to be tough to replace them this year.

What I want to know, is where would you find a whip that long?


Was planning to add some music, haven't had a chance to fiddle with it further yet though.

Kendra, That was fabulous, I have always wanted to drive a multiple hitch. Thanks for sharing, I love how they all match and that harness must have cost a pretty penny.

That is just amazing, Kendra...your granddad is an amazing guy.

I feel lucky to have met him, it's just too bad that Jack wouldn't have worked for the hitch!

Thank you for sharing this!
