Good horses that know their job <3

I saw this photo on my facebook feed, I mean, dang!



You wanna talk about one hell of a calf roping horse, it'd be about that horse. I just LOVE seeing photos with a truly impressive horse like that. Of course those of you that know me know that I love nothing more than a nice solid rope horse.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

Oh, I know it! I think one of my favorite videos is of Trevor Brazile and Texaco doing a run without a bridle.

One that I really wish I had a video of is Billy Allen at a team roping years and years ago. He was standing in the roping box and his bridle just fell off his horse as he was nodding his head (thanks to a broken chicago screw). He did the entire run with the bit hanging down on the horse's chest LOL. Knowing Billy, he probably won too.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Love it! Here's a picture that I came across the other day:

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

wow very impressive indeed! Love the picture of the horse staring the cow down! If my horse even saw a cow within 10 ft of the fence he would be high tailing it out of there!

I believe you are correct!

All those pictures/videos are awesome.

It's great to see a horse that truly loves its job and it dang good at it too.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.
