This episode of The Ride highlights 10x National Finals Rodeo qualifier Molly Powell's mare Pecan. You'd never know from the list of accomplishments—or her height for that matter, she's 15 hands tall—that Pecan was part pony. While this episode focuses in on Molly's special horse—and even has a few tears—the interview also chats about breeding standards, what makes a winning horse, and everything in between. You don't have to be a barrel racer to appreciate this interview. If you love horses and learning from one of the greatest horsewomen, then you'll enjoy this episode.
