It is a strap trick, so is the Back Drag which you can see below left.

Directly below is what you call a Reverse Layover the Neck.

Trick riding is done in a straight line but you can do it in a circle.

You need a trick saddle, these are very strong and can withstand the weight of a rider hanging off them in peculiar ways. They have extra strong stirrups and handholds for various maneuvers.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Above is Ace of Spades carrying his rider perfectly in a Forward Fender.

 

Ace was born in the millennium. He is 15.1 hands high and is a quarterhorse/standardbred. He is an ideal trick horse as he does not go like a bullet out of a gale, which can be a little too dangerous. He has a steady pace and will stop readily at the end of the run.
