Which is EXACTLY what Anky is doing. I've seen her at demos and competitions on some of those horses she rides, and she has two huge guys leading her horse in the ring for her to get on. Then she gets on and the horse LEAPS off until she can get a death grip on its face.
There's rumors of her quitting riding because the horses are really starting to scare her.
