We've all seen it--the young rider who's riding a young horse in a test and he spooks--hard--and she stays on, adjusts her saddle and keeps going beautifully. Anyone have the link? Meant to send it to a young rider I know who's lost her nerve and haven't been able to google up the right keywords.
This is another video you may want to show your rider. The horse bucks and the girl just keeps on going, even after losing her irons. =) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bZawtuBfttQ
However, she does fall off at the very end of the video.
I will. She took a nasty fall and broke her arm a few years ago as a 10 year old (pins, multiple surgeries, the works)...now she's ready to canter again but can't seem to shake off that fear. Thank you thank you
the one I was thinking is an AMAZING young horse and a male rider... the horse loses his marbles and he recovers beautifully and continues on. If anyone can find that I'd love to see it again. That horse walked on water (when he was spooking, and not)
