Congress Freestyle Reining

Pretty good show this year. There were some cute entries, some that made no sense, and then there were the ones that really stood out. Like this one.

Laura Mae Schoeler won the Freestyle Reining at Congress this year. It was a really fun routine. I have the link to the video here, but it does not do it justice at all. Anyway, you can see it here. ttp://

It was a Smarty Jones theme, and she did it all without the regular tools of a reiner--her butt and her legs. Well obviously, she used her legs, but the saddle she used is so different from a reiner that her legs were nowhere near the position the horse would be used to. It was really impressive. Its fun to see something different every once in a while.

Horse Student: she looks real dressed up, fancy in blue and white, horse also is dressed up---impressive. Have no idea about the 'saddle, butt, legs" and what is means---just take your word for it as being unique.

HOWEVER; she looks like she would be an entry in a round circle race-so-----free style reining-----in a few words can someone explain it?

It does look exciting though! And assume a one on one performance.

Enjoyed Carol
