‘Oh Crap’ Monday: This Is Why We Have a Throatlatch

Also, this horse is a rockstar… and so is the rider!

Monday already is the crappiest day of the week, so it only makes sense that we make things official. Here’s our latest “oh crap” moment.

As a western rider, I will fully admit that I love myself a one-eared headstall that doesn’t have a lot to it. No throatlatch or nose band or anything like that. However, if ever there were justification for having a throatlatch, this video certainly is it. What could have been a complete “oh crap” moment was instead a superb display of horsemanship. We’re impressed.

Go forth and tackle your Monday, Horse Nation.
