Superstar racehorse turned lead pony Lava Man makes his showing debut at the Thoroughbred Classic Horse Show on July 28, 2013 at the Rancho Mission Viejo Riding Park in San Juan Capistrano, California, U.S.A. He won all three classes in which he was entered - War Horse, War Horse Showmanship and Spirit of a Winner - and faced former racing rival Mr. Wolverine in the latter two. He was ridden and handled by Sommer Smith of NexStar Ranch, where Lava Man was laid up at one point during his racing career. Also appearing in this video are Dave Showalter, Smith's husband and co-owner of NexStar, and hunter/jumper trainer Kate McComas.
