Does anyone else cry when they watch this? AMAZING!

Everyone's probably already seen this, but I thought I'd post the link anyways. It's amazing. I get goosebumps watching it, and I want to cry.
Heck, I choke up and strain to hold back tears when I watch gymkhanas. Usually just barrel racing. I can sit through the movie marley and me, or my sisters keeper, and not be sad, and yet, barrel racing, Im a goner. WHY is this?
Anyhow, now that I'm sidetracked, who else loves that VIDEO?!?!

Wow, it takes a dang good seat to be able to ride something like that bareback.

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/

Aww...heck..I could do that easy enough. (with a bit of super glue on my butt)

Wow..great riding!

No gag bit. No spurs. No over under. And that horse STILL put up a 16 second ride. I hate to get preachy but there sure is a lesson to be learned there!

Nice! I could totally do that though! In my dreams anyways!

I feel like the girls that ride barrels around here should watch this. That class is filled with over-unders, gag twisted wire bits, tie downs, and rearing crazy horses.

Bring tears to my eyes? No.

But it's some ****ed fine riding, and I'm super impressed.

It looks to me like the horse recovered her a couple times. Incredible teamwork.

that's amazing! Her pony totally took care of her. There were a couple of times I thought oh crap she's going off and her horse totally ducked under her to keep her up there. Great horse, great seat, great team.

I am a goner for any of the triple crown races, new or old!! That and some of the liberty videos for Arabians.

Amazing! And I agree corinowalk

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.
