Wow FalseImpression. Poor horse. He was such a saint. The only reason I could watch it the whole way through was knowing that the guy was hurting too with all the crotch busters he was doing on landing.
Apparently the only thing this guy learned from lessons was how to pick up a lost stirrup without slowing down or looking down. Gotta admit he has got that down to a science. Saddle need a horn on it for him. He slam into that baby just once and be off to the ER.
Actually, it was no real contest. The ladies were riding a Fjord, albeit one with a star and a long mane, but a Fjord nonetheless. As a breed, Fjords are pretty tolerant and easy going. I'd say the ladies had a real advantage.
