One of the cowboys said, "Wow, that's a lot harder than it looks." Then the last cowboy to go asked if he could do it bareback. He said he doesn't ride bulls with a saddle so he wanted to see if he would do better with out a saddle on the horse. The hunter/jumper trainer said sure. So, the cowboy went for a line of three jumps. And he did so much better than when he had a saddle. Now that was impressive!! I defiantly would have slid right off that horse.
Then Chris Cox was given this huge gray horse to ride. That horse was super springy. It looked like a jack rabbit going over the jumps. Chris rode it in a double bridle and probably jumped 3 foot 6. The horse really didn't round pretty over the jumps. My guess is that it some big time show jumper and wasn't used to jumping small jumps. But Chris did awesome! I was impressed. Then the show ended. It was entertaining. It was fun watching bullriders ride horses in English saddles over jumps. And Chris Cox wasn't too bad to watch either. Hee Hee.
I don't know if you can watch old episodes online, but if you can, last nights was great! Well, for the entertainment value. I am not sure I learned anything new, but it sure was fun to watch.
