who doesn’t have a crush on Jacob Pope
If you say you don’t have a crush on Jacob Pope, you’re a liar.

I believe the term is “like a boss”
'like a boss' in that she used the shank bit in her horse's mouth to as the means to hold her balance and get back on the horse :|
Not quite. In the beginning she catches herself on it, but then uses his mane and neck to recover.
Actually, yeah, she does.
- she catches the horse in the mouth - check
- she holds the reins to maintain her balance/stay on - check
- if you look at the second gif, she’s holding onto the off-side rein even as she grabs the mane. You can see the slackening in the rein and the sliding forward of the shank toward the end once she is on the horse’s back and doesn’t need to hold tightly onto the rein for balance, right before she sits back and picks up connection with the bit again.
Good save, at the expense of the horses mouth.
yeh boo fucking hoo except it isn’t actually a shanked bit it’s this
meaning that she actually caught herself on a snaffle and hack combo. I think her horse will forgive her. Get over yourself.
Nobody is perfect. Especially when you’re relying on panicked instincts to save yourself from a fall. You’re going to make mistakes and cling on to whatever you can to keep from falling. And honestly-a little bit of pain to your horse’s mouth is better than falling and breaking a body part. That horse isn’t going to need months off for recovery. If she had fallen, she could have very possibly broken something that would have taken months to recover from.
