charlie's best bloopers

Happy Monday, everybody!

For those in the States, we're counting down the days until the Thanksgiving smorgasbord. And thank god for that haha.

Tho, naturally, it might also be the time we're feeling thankful for a little bit more than just mountains of gravy-soaked poultry. In which case, I'd like to take this opportunity to expand on the feelings of gratitude I expressed last week for my birthday.

This time around, I'd like to remember with happiness all those... other moments. Not necessarily our *best* moments, but the funnier, oopsie moments that naturally come along with the territory of pushing ever onward for better and more.


That's right: it's time for the blooper reel, folks. And it's a pretty good one! Charlie and I are that sorta partnership where there's seemingly endless source material for outtakes and goofs. In fact, we've got some examples for pretty much every month of our year-long+ partnership.

Naturally it's all annotated and captioned for your viewing pleasure. Recommended viewing with sound ON. ;)

While many of these clips have been featured previously on the blog, there are a few never-been-published moments in there too. Including an even better view of Charlie's infamous "free jumping" extravaganza (at approx. 0:30). You're welcome.

Should you also be inclined, here are also the blooper reels from the Isabel days, with videos from 2015 and 2014. Because funny moments of fail never get old!





Hope you all had a great weekend and are looking forward to all the approaching holidays with feelings of happiness, gratitude, and maybe a little mischief too!

  3. OMG the Charlie blooper reel made me laugh so hard. Also, those water combos where you had trouble were SUPER scary. Like, not very inviting at all, so good on him for being a bit skeptical! Also, good on you for sticking with him, cause it took him a bit of time to realize he had to lift his legs OVER the jumps, eh? But now that he has, he sure looks fantastic!!

    1. ha yea for sure, some of those early waters were.... less 'water' and more "mud pit." esp at tranquility lol. ah well. also yea early on he certainly didn't lend a lot of confidence in getting *over* the fences alive haha, and i definitely felt my life flash before my eyes when we stumble-splatted into that coop during our first xc outing.... thankfully he's more or less got that whole "jumping" thing almost figured out now!! glad you enjoyed the video ;)

    1. lol omg i know.... i can't even help myself! originally i didn't include that view of his.... free jump moment, and instead included the footage from my helmet cam resting a little farther away on a jump standard. it somehow made the fall look like less of an impact, and i was a little worried that his former owners had subscribed to my youtube and would see the fall and question my training methods. but. whatever. for the blooper video you get the footage of the fall alll up close and personal. it's so worth it lol
