    Fell of today....

    Well it was more of a slide off. I havent ridden bareback in months since I have been getting my horse in shape. So I decided to run the barrels, which wasnt a big deal, I use to jump 2+ foot bareback so whats the biggie? I can hold on right? My horse is pretty automatic, I just need to lightly steer and he GOs! I just held on and went for it, and did really well until half way home I realized that I need two hands to stop him, and I have taught him to turn to the left hard after the pattern So I let go of the mane and he wouldn't stop, he always stops and its his favorite part when he gets to stop! We almost hit the end of the arena when he takes a sharp left, I slide of to one said, at this point yelling, "whoa Ben! Whoa! What the heck are you doing? Stop pony stop!" As well as grabbing for my reins since I lost them in the process. At last he spooks at me clinking to his side and flings me off him. I land on my feet and he stops and turns around and said "hey mom! Wasnt that FUN!" Well, I did not find any of this fun. My mom and another lady were laughing historically, because Ben is a sweetheart and never does a thing like that. It was pretty great.

    Hahaha, I've had those days.

    Bareback now I tie a rope around Selena's neck just in case I need it. I don't fancy falling off!

    Oh, don't feel bad! I tried trotting bareback and fell off. Now that's something to laugh at.

    Trotting is the hard part!
    I'd much rather lope than trot bareback, trust me.
