One person who did this was Dr. Kerry Ridgway, who completed something
like the Dru Barner ride up in Georgetown CA, girth less. Kerry likes to
prove a point. Georgetown is near the Tevis trail, so this isn't Texas
levy he rode on. Knowing Kerry, the horse was probably fast and hot too.
I bet he didn't use a crupper, breast collar or martingale (?)...
putting those on a loose saddle wouldn't <ahem!> be safe.
