    Default Impressive bareback riding! (Is it possible I beat Mike to this?!)

    I wish I could do this...and that horse looks to be well trained, with plenty of gumption!

    Amazing seat, and what an honest horse!

    I posted the original photo. But the video has not had it's own topic!

    What a handy horse that has springs in his legs.

    I hope she saves some of those jumps though.

    I found that video awhile ago while wasting time on youtube ...love the horse, and that rider is impressive, too.

    I saw the video on FB, gaaaaaaah I want to be that bold a rider again!!!

    mildly OT: are those boots she's wearing in some of the vids/pics the ones from hworse? Because seeing them in action makes them not seem quite so ridiculous as seeing them on the site did...

    Equine Imagined, I saw those boots in real life at the Horze booth at WEG, and I kinda thought the same thing. But your right...in real life they don't look that bad! I don't know if I'd show in them, but for schooling they're kinda cool.

    I'm still amazed everytime i see this video. I'm a little jealous of that rider's seat too.
    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that to be a problem.

    I'd even take half as good... She's seriously amazing, if you just looked at her body position over fences, you'd have no idea she didn't have tack. Awesome horse too.

    And there I was, feeling super impressive managing to make it over a line without stirrups on my mare
    I like mares. They remind me of myself: stubborn know it alls who only acknowledge you if you have food.

    Lol, I jump my gelding bareback and bridleless with just a neck rope as well, but only over 2'3 at the highest! You should see me when I get off... I'm all "Wow, I'm so amazing and so is my horse."

    Then I see a video like this and remind myself that there is always something you should strive to achieve and am instantly humbled

    Clearly my concern about finding a saddle that fits properly is all backwards. What I need is a butt that fits him like a glove.

    That is what the paint horse people should be breeding for.
    Not 'just' color but a good attitude and talent too.

    Yes. Totally right. Pinto color should come after pinto performance and conformation.

    The form of the horse and the rider was great. This video is even better than the French rider video for form and style. (of course I don't remember much about the French rider video except the rider.)

    Hmm I bet it costs beaucoup to import from NZ. Foxtrot's, ask you brother if he can board this horse for me!
