    I Ran Barrels!

    Not on my horse but I ran them. I went to my boyfriends horse practice and I was riding one of his grandpa's horses around the arena and the group just asked if I wanted to try it. I obviously got a helmet first and foremost and then agreed. I didn't do terrible and the horse had obviously done it a thousand times it was great :) Not to mention she is well over 17 hands high Which is so much bigger than my 14.2 hand little guy :)

    Look out! It's addicting!!! I still remember the first time I really took a run at full gallop on a horse that knew what it was doing and I'm "old" ;). It was like getting that feel when you ride a bike successfully for the first time. Something clicks. A good horse will almost tell you how to move with it as long as you know a few basics. Fine tuning your cues comes with time. I can't tell you how many videos I still watch to polish myself here and there and then I can't wait to get out there again. Have fun!!!! :)

    There's no way to get rid of the speed bug, it'll catch you for sure.
