    Tasia, yes your post made sense. I rode his horse today; he put me on his most highstrung tb and I LOVE her!!! Lol. He said to just hold the reins in one hand because polo horses are taught to neckrein like western horses. I used a double bridle but he told me to hold the reins in one hand and neck rein. Wowww I didn't realize how smooth Arthurs trot and canter are! Cantering on Lola was very bumpy but fun. I rode the trails with his 15year old groom after my mom, sister and moms bf had gone inside, and we jumped all the creeks and stuff.....raced at a gallop on the way back to the barn; galloping English for the first time, I lost my stirrups so I was galloping without stirrups the whole way lol xD. I still won though lol! I'm hoping to ride Lola again....my horse doesn't gallop and it was exhillarating:). Thanks for the advice!

    See that 'bf' of a fella is quite a clever guy.

    I am glad you enjoyed your day -sounds like you had a lot of fun.

    Its best not to refer to as a: 'bf' - in English it is not quite polite. He seems to be a "good bloke"

    Okay:). I refer to him as 'bf' most of the time because I'm usually typing from my iPod, and try to use all the shortcuts I can lol. He's really nice
