If you are a horse owner and you love riding than most likely you have fallen off your horse at least once. It’s inevitable and it can happen to anyone. Even if you’re not hurt physically, a fall can leave you feeling emotionally unstable and you’ll need to regain lost confidence.
This thing can happen in all sport disciplines but falling off a horse is different because it has a huge effect on the rider’s confidence. Even if you are not hurt this situation can leave you feeling less self-confident and anxious about what’s going to happen next. Even the professionals can face difficulty by a horse that’s rearing, bucking or shying.
The most important after falling off is how you respond to it. That’s what really seperates a professional rider from an amateur one. The jockey showed in the video below showed that he truly is professional by handling these difficult situation perfectly well.
As you can see right as the jockey gets on, he rears but then jumps in the air! The jockey is unseated but he still manages to lands on his feet and he handles his rebellious mount, he really knows this horse very well and clearly understands his language.
Kudos to this jockey for being such an incredible athlete and showing what being a professional jockey means. He left the audience speechless with his quick reaction! Watch the interesting video below and if you liked this jockey’s moves please make sure to share it with your equestrian friends.
Tag a mate who always has things under control!
