  1. I have watched this video clip several times and each time I cry… This is a perfict text book example of true horsemanship at it’s best! Most definately trust and true love between the two of them.

  2. I wish i could do that with Scout! She’s awesome!!!! The only thing I don’t like is it looks like a Tennsee Walker Baron that we had to put down that i loved very much and he would prob do that if i asked him to.

  3. I think she looks great out there on Baby Doll. It makes me want to get out there and work on my Paint a little, just for the fun. I truly believe she started out doing this for the pure joy of playing with her horse.

  4. this reminds me on my horse smilly he died the day befor thanks giving and…. i will never forget what he had tought me…. i am realy trying not to cry here but i ust to be able to do that with smilly i wil never for get you baby!! this is amazing and very inspirational!!

  5. Lauren of course you would. Like I would want to do this with Pistol one day. I don’t care if people say I am crazy I am going to try.

  6. That was really nice! You should wear your helmet though. You are really nice and tall! It is amazing how you can canter without a bridle or a saddle. That is amazing!

  7. Wow! What an amazing ride! Stacy is one incredible horse trainer. Congratulations! She obviously spent mega hours working with this horse and it certainly paid off in this astounding performance.

  8. Absolutely amazing performance captured in this video. What Blessings God has given. Mutual love and respect. Brought tears to my eyes—beautiful.

  9. I just read about Roxy’s passing. Please accept my sincere sympathy over her loss and the loss of her foal.
    She was truly a “once in a lifetime” animal…

  10. I would love to have a horse like that!! They worked so well together. I just about cried when I saw this, it was truly beautiful.:)

  11. Tears streaming down my cheeks, admiring the beauty and grace of Stacy & BB Doll…saddened by loss of this truly amazing horse.
    I WILL be studying the Westfall Technique/Methods as I learn to understand/ride/train my new 4 yr old filly…Thank You Stacy & BB Doll!!!

  12. I was so moved by the obvious skill of Stacy and the deep connection with Roxy that was clearly evident in such a spectacular bareback and bridleless ride. She absolutely should be revered for her obvious understanding of horses and how to work with them and her exceptional skill as a rider. Kudos to her and Roxy for a truly amazing display of closeness between horse and rider. I will continue to follow her and am saddened by the loss of such a talented and beautiful horse.

  13. Hey its me i was just posting this to tell you that i love love love the way you rode and espesially bridleless!!!!!!! You are very good at that!!

  14. SOOOOOOOOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!! It makes me cry EVERY TIME I watch it. Stacy and Roxy were AMAZING! I only wish my horse and I could be half as good as they were together. RIP Roxy.

  15. Hey i cant believe you can do that! My trainer can do that with her horse and i just dont think i can do that. If i could, i know it would be in forever. That is great that you can do that. I love you horse

  16. Stacy your great, great, great. The love and trust between your horse and you; shows the love and respect you have for animals. Thank you for being you.

  17. my grand daughter turn 16 today.. she has been doing shows since she was 10.. Emily has watched your videos and her class is tenderfoot if that is correct. Well Yesterday she tried reigning for the first time. with only maybe an one hour of practice. she did okay no win. but I know she wants to become as good as you and Emily does not quit.. I have watch your video several times in fact I have e mailed her information on some training. you are Great.

  18. If I am having a bad day, I watched this video. It instantly lifts my spirits that there could be such an awesome bond between horse and rider. You are an awesome pair.It is beautiful to watch every single time!
