Extreme bareback horse riding catapults woman into a viral success

Extreme bareback horse riding takes a specific skillset. But even the most professional riders would have trouble keeping up with Alycia Burton.

A dime a dozen is the upsetting side of horse ownership. For every great success story you hear, there are several that have failed. On the professional level, only the best get equal treatment. But what about the weak, untrained, or aggressive horses?

Alycia Burton is a New Zealander that takes on the horses no one wants. She gains their trust and friendship, and then provides each horse with the training they need.

Normally, this would be a tough job all on its own. But Alycia takes it one step further by being a world renowned extreme bareback horse rider. It’s one thing to teach horses to behave, and an entirely different world to teach them on a professional level.

Without a saddle or protection, she puts her life in the hands of horses that can buck at any second. Astonishingly, she not only succeeds, but breaks riding and jumping records.

There is no special trick to Alycia Burton’s training. Kindness and dedication are her only tools, and she wields them well. Burton isn’t rich, and doesn’t have an endless amount of land to ride on. She is an average country girl that wants the same freedom that the horses are fighting for. Together they found the promised land, and there is no reason to go back.
