This is cool.

I really like Stacy Westfall. I wish I could ride half as good as her. Sorry, if this video has been posted already on her, but its too cool not to share.

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

Yes, she's a very talented trainer and rider, and gives very interesting demonstrations (unlike some other famous trainers).

I was at Congress to watch that ride, it was electric! There were very few dry eyes in the house. I think she's a fabulous trainer & rider, she uses a lot of common sense in her training methods. Thanks for posting this, took me back to being there :)

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

I watch that video about 3 or 4 times a week. I love ALL her videos but that one is my total favorite.

I have watched that video at least 50 times, and never get tired of it. She was the one who inspired me to strive for bridleless stuff with my mare. So beautiful. I wish I had half that much skill and knowledge.

I subscribed to her YouTube channel a while back; she's posted some interesting training videos. I really respect her way of training.

Did you know she doesn't actually own Roxy?

Yes I have seen the video many times. My Auntie had recieved it over email and the people(s) who sent it thought she was mute(as in couldnt talk). Ignorant non horse people. We don't train horses like dogs.

Live to ride. Ride to live.
