Gimme Shelter - Finale
This year's group of 12 horses were a diverse and talented group. They were all remarkable in terms of how far they had progressed in 100 days of training (or less, in some cases) and while the stress of showing off in front of a large audience put them to the test, every one passed with flying colors.
