There’s something to be said about a well-trained horse. Sometimes all you can do is hang on for dear life!
Some days, it’s just not your day. We get it. Your horse doesn’t necessarily, though. This lovely pair were partaking in a reining pattern, when the rider was unseated during the slide. What happens next, well, you’ll want to just see for yourself. (WARNING: There is some very slightly NSFW language in the video, so watch with the volume down if you are at work!)
I do not intend to make fun about the rider, just don’t want to ignore such a very gentle horse that knows the job:)

What a horse, right? While his dear rider hangs on for her life, he continues to go about his business, as he clearly has learned the pattern by heart and fully knew what was coming next.
You have to love a horse who truly knows its job. We’ve seen plenty of these moments in every discipline you can think of, and we had to chuckle at the horse’s look of bewildered surprise to find his rider on the ground after he finished what he surely thought was a top-quality spin.
Ah, better luck next time, guys. At least everyone emerged from the incident unscathed, save perhaps a bit of ego left on the ground.
Go riding, and Go Fleeceworks!
