There are some stunning examples of incredible horsemanship and the story we are going to show you below, is definitely one of them. Laura Cheshire figured out how to lead her horse after the bridle broke mid-race. Although not many people believed that she would make it, Luara proved everyone that she was a great rider and did what everyone thought was impossible of doing.
It has been a good demonstration of abilities and trust between the horse and the rider! Her bridleless ride has shocked everybody since she was in the track running to the success at max speed, and that is not something you don’t see every day. She had to come up with something very quickly when her bit broke. She figured out how to control her horse, Secret Blend, and keep him safe.
Laura needed to get the reins when the bridle broke because in any case Secret Blend could get trapped and fall. As soon as the other riders noticed what had happened to her, they gave her all the space she needed. The Thoroughbred ran very fast when one of the riders attempted to assist Laura.
She needed to direct him toward the rail, and when she figured out how to do that she jumped off the seat and wrapped one of the reins around his nose. Laura’s skills saved them and she proved once again what an amazing rider she was. Watch the beautiful video shown below and make sure to share it with your friends!
Stewards footage from yesterday.. this song played when I got in my car to drive home and the relief was strong that myself and Exo (Secret Blend) both came away without a scratch. We are purple and white barrier 11. Blessed that I was able to wake up and ride trackwork this morning. Last pic is the boy and I this morning. He is tired but well. Three laps he really deserves to sleep for a week! ❤️❤️ #jockeylife #luck #stickwiththeship #threelapsnobridle
