That is great. Kudos for him. =) I loved the part where about halfway through the race he took the reins in one hand and just patted the horse and continued on......... no big deal.

Very impressive.

...Patted the horse... reached down and pulled his sock up... read a book...

There's a lot going on in this little clip.

I loved how he cropped the horse, looked back, realized he didn't need it, tossed it, and began celebrating.

What an incredible win.
