Warning Label Needed!

I'm in the middle of writing another post (still two to go on my KY visit, if you can believe it), but I had to share this video with you (courtesy of Dressage Mom - thanks for promoting it first):

Wowie! I do think, though, that this ought to come with a very large warning bannered across the beginning: DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME. Can't you just see Little Johnny on board his long-suffering Shetland, standing up in the saddle and waving around Mommy's butcher knife? Yikes. I can't imagine how much time these extremely skilled riders and beautiful, patient horses spend practicing all of this. I don't know what breed of horse these are, either. It would take a very special mount to be part of this troupe!


  1. That type of trick riding is called Cossacks.

    Very impressive!

  2. Also, make sure you check out the video I posted on my blog, I think you will find it interesting!

  3. I should clarify, I mean the YouTube video that I left a link to in my T-8 weeks post, not the ones of me and Prince.


Thank you for your comment!
