arl Cook’s life has been a bit of a whirlwind lately. From developing young horses at his family’s Pomponio Ranch, rescuing bunnies, and oh yeah, marrying Kaley Cuoco and establishing their life together, the guy is a tad busy.

With so much to balance, we wouldn’t blame Karl for being stressed to the max, and yet, we never see him break under pressure or lose his cool. Kudos to you, Karl.

But we wonder, is he really as laid back in the saddle as he is on Instagram stories? Surprisingly, yes. Sure, it might be something in the California air, or the fact that he looks like he might throw on a wetsuit and paddle out on a surfboard at any moment, but the reality is that Karl has learned over time just what to do when the jumps go up and the prize money gets heftier.
