[RC] Cougar Rock video - Kristi Schaaf

I just watched the 9 minute You Tube video, and for
those of you who have been over it (or around it, I
should say, as that's what everyone except one person
did in the video), please share feedback on the best
way to get safely over it. In the video, I saw a few
people actually canter their horses over most of it
(seemed awfully high risk to me?) and other people
allow their horses to take one tentative step at a
time. A few horse/rider pairs looked really in synch
doing it and made it look fairly effortless, but the
vast majority were not, er, pretty. And I was really
surprised at how many people seemed to use the reins
to 'hold' themselves on. I held my breath during much
of the video, afraid that I might see someone
literally flip over backwards. Please tell me that
that IS the steepest section on the whole Tevis trail!

Life's a journey, so enjoy the ride (and try not to fall off)
