    Default Talk about a velcro seat (video)!

    I'm not familiar with this rider, but boy can she stay on a horse. At 1:22 I would have gone for a swim for sure

    From what I read she is asked to help a lot of "troubled" horses deal with their issues. She seems to be a very sensitive rider.

    I don't blame the horse at 1:30. E's can be terrifying.

    Hehe I've seen that video before but watched it again and still love it - she's pretty inspiring with how calm and effective she is about everything

    That's Phoebe Buckley, an amazing young Brit who's an incredible talent. Her parents are travelers (gypsies) so she comes from no money but just rides unbelievably well. Won int'l Young Riders stuff and took a pony around Badminton and Burghley I think 6 times total. Unbelievable rider

    I can't believe I haven't heard of her, what an amazing story! She can certainly ride.

    Neigh- When you said E i thought you meant Elimination lol.....

    And WOW!! I mean, not that it is actually easy to ride a made horse, but to ride that well, and keep calm and cool on a horse that worked up is even more amazing. I have the upmost respect for anyone who can just sit and let the horse essentially fight itself, I feel it works out so much better in the long run when they realize that it's just easier to do it our(the rider's, not me haha) way first.
    You can't fix stupid.... but you can breed it!

    I love how quiet she is about everything, I too definitely would have been wet after that horse launched himself into the water like that!

    That buck at :41 would have lawn-darted me as well. His rear was vertical! I love that she doesn't grab their face at all, she keeps her leg on and keeps her balance while they sort through the nonsense.

    If only I had half that balance . . .

    She is an amazing rider! I applaud her for taking on those horses and staying sooo cool when they are doing what they are doing.

    On a related note, I would not be caught dead on a lot of those horses. Some of those I would not have been able to stick and man that ground hurts.
