This guy has quite the technique...

I was watching the WR video for about the 5th time and clicked on this in the suggestions.

I had to watch it a couple times, wasn't too sure what was going on there. LOL

Totally not a fan of this guy!

Granted, he has a fast time, but he's doing just about everything you are NOT supposed to do if you want to barrel race the right way. (as most people would consider "the right way" anyway)

But this is the norm in Brazille right now. They're slowly progressing to "the right way", but haven't gotten there yet.

At one point, or two.... I was positive he was going to face-plant. LOL

holy crap he's going to like throw his horse way off balance if he keeps leaning in towards the barrel like that!

OMG I seriously thought he was going to either hit his face on the barrels or do a major face plant omg.

All I can say is . 1st barrel looked almost painful, 2nd barrel looked really ungraceful and choppy. But I did like the 3rd barrel save. It looked......interesting. If you paused it as he leans forward, it looks like he was licking the horse's ear!

Almost looks like he's using the barrels as a brace to not fall of the side of his horse.
Honestly thought he was going to hit the dirt at one point.

I have to give him some credit though... LOL... if I tried to lean during a run like that, if my horse didn't fall, I sure would!

Somebody needs to learn the "outside stirrup" technique.

But honestly, who would of thought of that on their own if someone hadn't told them about it? Who would of thought leaning to the OUTSIDE of a turn would help you turn tighter and smoother?

It looks like he is trying to keep the barrels from falling by doing that. Major wth though.
