Horses and Water Skiing…Who Knew?

We cover a lot of different things during our club meetings, and learn some interesting tidbits about our members.  Last night we discovered that when Barbara and Mike Charron met, Mike was WAY more into waterskiing than horses. He was really good with barefoot skiing and even into the pyramid formations.

And that led to Janet DelCastillo’s telling us that her son and horses were actually filmed in a Mountain Dew commercial back in the late 1980s. The Los Angeles actor flown in for the commercial couldn’t ride a horse, so Nando was drafted to ride the horse while the actor skied behind. Who was the actor? A very young Brad Pitt!
