I think the reason this guy has his right foot so high up in the air is because he’s still in the process of getting off his horse. Once the rider ropes the calf and starts to dismount, the horse is trained to start backing up in order to keep the line taut; so shortly after the boot clears the stirrup (way before it has time to hit the ground) the horse has already stepped back a couple of feet.]]>
