Zach Combs turned heads at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in late February when he demonstrated the art of cutting … without a saddle or bridle.
Cutting is one of those disciplines that showcases a horse’s raw talent, the innate ability of a stock horse to read cattle and move with them. It’s an intense feat of athleticism, both for the horse, who is rolling low over his hocks and crouching to give a cow “the eye,” and for the rider, whose job is to make it look like he or she is not doing anything at all while he or she literally hangs on for dear life. Yes, cutting — where you will see the biggest most manly-looking cowboy with a death grip on the saddle horn.
So when a horse and rider amble up to the herd with naught but a lead rope around the horse’s neck, naturally it gets our attention. Watch Zach Combs ride bareback and bridleless to the herd! (Note: must be logged in to Facebook to view.)
Ride ‘Em Cowboy . . . . . Zach Combs put on quite a show at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo during the World Series. This man not only rode to the herd Bridleless, he was bareback. What a show!
