Barrel racing tip: sit until your horse finishes the turn, it will help them if your weight  isn't being thrown around.

Bucking horse off the ground~this is called sun fishing and the rider usually ends up squished unless he is fast on his feet!!!

Feb. 3, 1989: Apprentice jockey Nate Hubbard hung on for second literally when his horse, Sweetwater Oak, stumbled near the finish line at Golden Gate Fields and flipped the rider out of his saddle. As he tumbled forward, Hubbard grabbed on to the filly’s neck and hung in mid-air until the race was over. The track stewards ruled it an official finish because Hubbards feet never touched the ground and Sweetwater Oak carried her assigned weight throughout the race.

Clarrie, ex racehorse....A bit unusual for a rodeo "bronc"....she's a thoroughbred mare who kept bucking off her jockeys, so now she has a new career.  And she apparently is enjoying it.  Said to be a record height for a bucking horse coming out of the chute!   This girl is flying!
