Richard Spooner and Incento are a magnificent team. When Incento left a stride out of a triple combination and nose dived, Spooner handled PERFECTLY! Spooner let go of the reins and kept on riding! Incento was able to pick himself up and jump the next two elements of the triple while Spooner rode him through it with no reins and his arms out to the side.
Sometimes you just have to trust your horse! “It was my mistake that caused the problem,” recalled Spooner. “After that I was trying to be out of his way and let him find his way. I didn’t want to upset the apple cart. He was busy fighting for both of our survival.”
What an AMAZING team! Share this on Facebook if you agree!
