I love that tail! In one of the comments on youtube they said they condition it with WD40 and that they have to immediatly braid and bag it because he steps on it! Amazing!

Speck was awesome in his day. If you want to see more speed rackers, go to youtube.com and type in The Undertaker and The Gravedigger....hold on to your seats! LOL!

I went to the SHOBA (Single-footing horse) gathering at East Fork Stables in Jamestown, TN last September. There was a mix of Single-footers and speed-rackers there. . .made it fun to watch, anyway.

It's really amazing to see these horses in-person. . .especially when a group of them comes flying down the road side-by-side!

Beautiful - saw a speed racking expo at the United Mountain Horse show in Kentucky last year and it is amazing to watch in person - the horse and rider were taking the turns like you would see a motorcycle rider at speed.
