    Default This is pretty cool! (Or insane. Not sure!)

    I was watching bull riding videos on Youtube and came across this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQ0ex2R71yQ

    I'm not sure if it's really cool or insane. Love the mule! I don't think many horses would do that!

    The One Armed Bandit...he's been around for a while...he did the same with Watusi cattle. Seen him live a couple of times, it is pretty cool.

    That's really cool. Awesome mule, too.
    DH always says he's going to have a bull one day and train it to be ridden. Ok, hunny

    Next time the baby horse (Fen) refuses to load, I'm going to show him this.

    I've honestly never seen anything like it. I'm amazed.

    I can just imagine walking out to your trailer and seeing a random buffalo standing on top.

    Very cool...but the depart from a fast moving trailer...1/2 second off in timing and both man and mule are **cked.

    We've seen him several times, riding both his horse and a mule, and always make it a point to go to the rodeo when he's performing. The horse is just as honest at jumping on and off the rig as needed. He also "rode in the parade" with his horse atop the trailer.

    The bison are well trained, but if you watch carefully, you'll note that he lets them settle for a couple of minutes before he starts working them. This isn't always apparent in youtube videos, but when you see him in a live performance, he waits until the bison are ready to work. After they've rolled, looked around, and whatever else they want to do, they do their part of the routine with little or no urging. We've seen the bison jump up on the trailer of their own accord.

    There used to be a performer who did a simple reining pattern aboard a bison - his changes were pretty clean, but his stops didn't rock the world!
