Hello everyone!!!

Does anyone have any footage of any of her national performances they can download? ( not including 97' ) I want to buy a tape from Seehorse video, as they have all years recorded I think, but deciding what year would be best, as I unfortunately never saw her in person, also does anyone know if/what/where any of her get are?

I never heard much of anything about any of them, but I have been kinda out of the "loop" so to speak for a while, and am trying to get back into things, thanks in advance for info!!

yours truly,

Cree

Actually, I think I do have some footage of one of her wins. I don't know why. would it have been on a sales video? hmmm. goose bumps horse. I was so disappointed that she didn't make it to Nationals the last year in Louisville when they invited some of the greats back. I'll go look. I might be able to copy it and put on youtube. I think it was mainly her victory pass. Possibly the year she lost a shoe, but kept going and you couldn't tell? Would that have been '97? I'll always remember the announcer and and how she said her name. Coounntesssss Vvaaanesssaaaaaa! 97 was an odd year, so Nationals would have been in Albuquerque.


I found it! it's from 1992 at Louisville. Its a bit of the ring work and then the victory passes.

Hey, thanks, do not know if it would have been 97' probably not as I saw a tape of that, and it was a male announcer, she was reserve to Supreme Decision that year, if you find your you tube clip, that would be GREAT, thanks again , Cree

Wow, thanks for info. too bad she did not produce more offspring, or any stallions that could of "bred on" at least for half arab divisions, or the couple you mentioned that apparently were not shown/used/bred, to possible potential.

I have seen this mare perform twice in person, once in KY and then again at the Buckeye, both times she was Park Champ. How could she be anything else? Just an amazing athlete, thought she was going to hook her hoof on the top rail in Freedom Hall during the victory pass!!!

Please post the youtube link when it is available.

I'm working on it. I'm not the handiest with the copy machine, but this is good practice. I've got some time this afternoon. I'll let you know!

OK, here she is. Remember the tape is at least 16 years old and a copy of a copy. The DVD took out some more of the quality, but she still gives you goose bumps.



if this doesn't work, just search Countess Vanessa.

I watched the 1997 one on youtube, but it showed very little of her, as it was done for the winner.

Magnificent, thank you, good enough to bring back the memories of being there in person.

Funny story, my mom and I were walking around the warm up area earlier in the day and my mom walks up to this guy who had just gotten off of his horse and asks him who the horse is and he says Countess Vanessa, so my mom says ok we will watch and cheer for her and he says .... might as well, everyone else will be. Well we had no clue who she was and when she went in the ring, I told my mom ... that is the horse and guy you were talking too and he was right everyone was cheering for them!!!
