I'm going to assume we're talking about how barrel racers "fly away" on the way between barrels and home.
I see no place for it. If you're grabbing the horn for dear life and flapping your legs..You'd better hope that horse doesn't decide to throw in a buck or decide to spook at something outside the arena (or a groundhog running through the arena..lol. Had that happen once at a show). No way in hell are you balanced with flapping legs running at full speed. And if that horse just completely stops? Uh-Oh, you're over it's head, face-first.
Not to mention, because you can't flap your legs like I see these girls without slamming down on your horse's back each stride..It isn't helping your horse go faster, it's honestly slowing them down. No finished horse should stay at a dead run with a rider bouncing all over the place. Posted via Mobile Device
