Stacy Westfall 2006
I love this video! Stacy is an incredible horsewoman! What balance! I had saved this from several years ago, but only recently discovered it again, so I decided to post it here so I would know where to find it when I want to be inspired to be a better rider.
I watched the clip, also on YouTube, of Stacy on the Ellen Degeneres show, before posting this. She said she started training this horse as a 2 year old and that it took her 3 years riding her 1 to 1/2 hours a day, 5 days a week before the horse was trained to perform without a bridle. It then took Stacy another year of practice before she could stay on the horse without a saddle. Now that's persistence and determination!
