Horseback Free Rider


THAT PESKY SADDLE THAN BY TAKING A CLASS WITH UNBEFORE THE MASTERS? ALYCIA BURTON JOINS YOU LIVE FROM LINCOLN WITH MORE ON THE MASTERING THE ART OF FREE RIDING. JUST TO CLARIFYING, FREE RIDING MEANS NO SADDLE, JUST BAREBACK ON THE HORSE? ABSOLUTELY. SO IT’S REALLY ABOUT GETTING AN AMAZING PARTNERSHIP WITH YOUR HORSE. THERE’S A LOT OF TRUST INVOLVED. OBVIOUSLY, WHEN YOU’RE JUMPING REALLY BIG JUMPS, THERE’S A LOT OF RISK INVOLVED AS WELL. BUT TO ME, THERE’S NO BETTER WAY THAN TO BE ABLE TO REALLY SHOW THAT BOND AND RELATIONSHIP YOU HAVE WITH YOUR HORSE. YOU HAVE BEEN DOING THIS SINCE YOU WERE A CHILD, RIGHT? TRYING TO BREAK IN WILD HORSES. ABSOLUTELY. SO I STARTED FREE RIDING WHEN I WAS 11 YEARS OLD. AND I STARTED BREAKING IN AT THAT AGE AS WELL. AND IT REALLY STARTED WITH MY I THINK NOT WANTING TO FOLLOW THE RULES OF WHAT PEOPLE SAID THAT YOU SHOULD BE DOING AND THE WONDERFUL THING ABOUT THAT IS I’M NOW IN MY THIRD COUNTRY, MY THIRD YEAR TRAVELING AROUND THE WORLD, AND IT’S LED ME ON A WONDERFUL ADVENTURE. SO I HAVE TO ASK YOU, IF YOU DON’T HAVE A SADDLE, HOW DO YOU TELL THE HORSE WHICH DIRECTION TO GO AND WHAT YOU WANT TO DO AND ALL THAT? WELL, RIGHT NOW I’M ACTUALLY RIDING GOLD RUSH PURELY OFF MY LEG CUES. YOU CAN TEACH AN ANIMAL MANY CUES TO DO LOTS OF DIFFERENT THINGS. I CAN RIDE HIM FROM THE ROPE AROUND HIS NECK RIGHT NOW AND I CAN ALSO TURN HIM JUST USING MY HANDS ON THE SIDE OF HIS NECK AND I CAN ALSO TURN HIM JUST FROM USING MY LEGS AND REALLY HE IS A WONDERFUL EXAMPLE OF WHAT YOU CAN ACTUALLY GET WHEN YOU TAKE THE TIME AND YOU HAVE THE PATIENCE TO WORK WITH THEM. SO HOW DOES THIS WORK FOR THE ANIMAL? DO THEY PREFER THIS METHOD DO YOU THINK OR WITH THE SADDLE? WHAT’S EASIER FOR THE ANIMAL? I DON’T KNOW IF THERE’S A PREFERRED METHOD WITH THE ANIMAL. I WOULD ACTUALLY SAY THAT IT REALLY COMES DOWN TO THE INDIVIDUAL DOING IT. I STILL RIDE IN A SADDLE BUT PEOPLE DON’T LIKE WATCHING ME DO THAT BECAUSE THIS IS A LOT HARDER. SO WHEN WE’RE DOING AN EVENT OR PERFORMANCE, THEM TO SEE A LITTLE BIT OF RISK INVOLVED. A LITTLE RISK. NOW, YOU ALSO TEACH YOUTH. ABSOLUTELY. THE ONLY REASON WHY I’M ACTUALLY PERFORMING AND THIS BEAUTIFUL LITTLE HORSE HAS PUT ME ON AN INCREDIBLE PLATFORM WHERE WE ARE ABLE TO IMPACT MORE THAN 20,000 YOUTH EVERY YEAR, AND I HAVE DEDICATED THE REST OF MY LIFE TO HELPING YOUNG PEOPLE HEAL FROM THEIR PAST, DISCOVER WHAT THEIR PASSIONS ARE AND TO LIVE A LIFE ON PURPOSE TO THE VERY BEST OF THEIR ABILITY. AND WE HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS WITH YOUTH RIGHT NOW IN MANY, MANY COUNTRIES. SO FOR ME, BEING ABLE TO GIVE BACK AND USE A HORSE AS A WAY TO BE ABLE TO GET THROUGH IS JUST MAGICAL. WELL, THAT’S A BEAUTIFUL HORSE, CLASSIC GOLD RUSH IS THE HORSE’S NAME. BEAUTIFUL. OKAY. SO ALYCIA, IF YOU DON’T MIND, CAN YOU HANG OUT WITH US UNTIL THE NEXT HOUR? I’D LOVE TO HANG OUT WITH YOU. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING ME. ABSOLUTELY. SHE HAS THAT FREE RIDING CLINIC TONIGHT AT TRIPLE CROWN EQUESTRIAN CENTER IN LINCOLN AT 6:00 P.M.
