Bareback & Bridleless – Stacy Westfall

Fredi Castro, my husband and fellow horse trainer specializes in Native American Horsemanship. Therefore he does most of his training bareback. So whenever we see another trainer riding bareback especially a major horse show, we find it pretty exciting.

Stacy Westfall has been everywhere lately, including this month’s cover of Horse & Rider Magazine.

Check out Stacy Westfall’s Freestyle Reining AQHA Congress 2006 Championship Run, bareback and bridleless. It’s truly amazing. After watching the video I have a new goal for Fredi, and fortunately he has agreed. After watching this video, I bet you ditch your saddle for a few rides and get excited about bareback again.

Enjoy!

    Hi Gals!

    I know, I keep watching it over and over. It is so awesome.

    It takes a good minded horse to be able to accomplish such an amazing feat. It looks like she is having so much fun.
