    Default Now This is Balance on a Horse!

    Yes, this is an actual photo taken by a photographer at a beach shoot. Holy cow!

    The question is, did he get back on the horse or did he end up eating sand?

    Still impressive, though!

    my son looked just like that once when his mare bucked and then bolted out of the arena. He was hanging on just like that right before he saw the tree she was headed for and decided to eat dirt!

    He is using a western trick riding saddle and he is very good, not only as a trick rider, but look at that form.

    Many specialty exhibition events in rodeo intermissions were hired to people like him and they are really more like circus riders than competitors, a whole different level of balance and grace from most riders.

    Wonderful picture.

    Wonderful indeed. I am glad the horse is not a bucker!

    Okay, so we know "never put the cart before the horse" is this "never put the horse before the rider" ?

    Impressive for sure!

    Huh, I guess some horses can run faster than the person can ride.

    Wish I'd been at that beach shoot. Know who I would have been chattin' up.

    Erm, about the trick riding, of course.
