    I don't know anything about pole bending but that was a pretty determined horse! Too bad it doesn't count, that would be awesome. It made me laugh, I needed it. My tummy hasn't been my friend today so laughing was much needed!

    That was sweeeeet!

    I do agree with sorrelhorse. I don't like riding horses that know their job so well that all you have to do is stay on. There is no fun in that.

    Haha! That's great! :)

    I wonder if the rider got a second try while on the horse.

    I absolutely loved this vid. I tend to dislike videos like this, only because usually it's the rider getting bucked off and then the horse turning a barrel before bolting for the gate and it's blatantly obvious the horse does NOT love his job, he's just so amped on adreneline he doesn't know how to do anything else. Good barrel horses don't buck their riders off or fight like hell at the gate.

    Unfortunately, you will often get this auto pilot on game horses because of the constant repetition of the sport. It definitely doesn't mean they're actually "auto pilot", as you can see he knocked a pole down and a winning time of 1/16 of a second from second place is the difference between a rider calculating exactly how tight they can cut those turns and a rider not taking the risk.

    Matter fact, often in games, an auto pilot horse is NOT what you mean because they're so convinced they know what to do, they won't listen to rider cues. I would never buy an auto pilot games horse for that reason alone!

    Haha, heavy discussion aside, that WAS spectacular - it's EXTREMELY rare to ever see a horse actually complete the pattern when he's gotten loose or dumped a rider!

    That freakin video made my eyes well up with tears!!

    Wow that was awsome.

    Wow, now that horse knows his job. Barrels is an easy pattern to finish with no rider but poles are much more complicated. He did a wonderful job and I will nearly bet you that he didn't get too close to that one pole. I figure it was probably a loose, flapping stirrup caught it on the way by that wouldn't have happened had there been a foot in it . If only he weren't so high strung, that is the kind of horse little kids need for barrels and poles. They need horses that know the pattern inside and out so that they can focus on their riding and horsemanship rather than concentrate on just remembering which way to turn.

    Thank you for posting that, it was very enjoyable.

    I gotta add that I've done a four man drill team before for a half a year and even though its been two years my horse still knows the 5 minute pattern after i've done about the first two movements for the pattern haha.

    Out of a horse knowing its pattern I'm pretty sure you don't or won't ever just sit there and let them do it. There is still a lot of adjusting that is needed to be done. No horse can be perfect i'm sure.
