    Pretty cool, but would it risk injuring the horse's leg?

    Guess that others had the same question, she added the answer.
    It was taught as a trick, not something to do often.
    She has some protection for the leg.

    That is innovative, had not seen quite that, just some horses kneeing or stretching out, also something you don't want to do much, it puts strains on the horses.
    Or laying down and sitting up before standing back up with a rider already on their backs.
    That last one we used to do at times.
