Stacy Westfall On The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Here is a wonderful clip of Stacy Westfall and her horse Roxy on the Ellen DeGeneres Show from back in March.

I have to admit, I have been a bit obsessed with riding bareback lately. I guess it comes from Fredi, whom has been doing all the riding and training since I have been unable ride. I live vicariously through him. I call him my “show pony”. I am always showing him off, because I can’t do anything myself these days. “Fredi, show my Dad how you stand up and walk on the horse’s back…” They shake their heads and laugh with me. Or is it at me?

I love this video, it will bring a smile to your face and a tear to your eye. Well, it did mine and I’d like to think it’s not just the pregnancy hormones ;)

    I posted this a while back on my blog. I still can’t get enough of it. Ellen did a pretty darn good job hanging in there on those spins. I couldn’t believe she managed to get the mare to spin that well in that short amount of time. So much for her being a beginer, I think she just lacks confidence.

    She really did a great job. I’m sure Ellen has some experience riding before. If not she is pretty natural and with a little training could do really well.

    I think you’re right about Ellen lacking confidence, I think Stacy’s bareback run was probably a bit intimidating for her.
