That is awesome!!!!

Very clever freestyle idea. But wouldn't be illegal as she is in a english saddle?

EDIT* Wait, Stacey Westfall didn't use any tack at all, so I guess it counts. heh, I answered my own question.

I think in quarter horse congress it's fine....Stacy Westfall rode no saddle at all.(That's not comparable nevermind lol) but this was amazing especially during the rollbacks after the slides I would've probably slid right off the horses butt lol.

That is AMAZING. I loved Stacy's run, but that girl has SERIOUS skills to be able to pull those manevours in almost full jockey position. It was fascinating watching her have to shift her knees back and forth during a slide just to stop herself from going flying from the sheer power of it!

Definite winner, both for creativity and the skill it took to do this not only in an English saddle, but standing in the stirrups. For anyone doubtful, try it sometimes - it's unreal how difficult it is to just HOLD that position much less do what she did!

Thanks for sharing, it was a pleasure to watch!

No problem Macabre. I so admire Stacy and her bareback run was beautiful but this girl gets it for guts and leg strength....it defiantely is hard to ride Jockey style cause when I first got my English saddle I hoisted up the stirrups so I was sitting/standing like a Jockey, man oh man does it kill your knees after a while if you're not used to it. This girl definately deserved first place.

That's hilarious! Makes me want to learn Western. See reiners actually have FUN - with dressage even the freestyle is stuffy.
