If I didn't have a young, green, trickster, I'd love to do this!

I'm hoping to, at least once we fix our saddle fit issues! I can also just ride bareback!

Well, I don't ride English so I'm not going to try taking the leathers off my saddle (I'd never get them back on LOL).

Is it okay if I opt to go bareback instead? Still no stirrups....

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Challenge accepted!

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.

Doing my first ride tomorrow. Added a neck strap and bucking strap so I don't catch my poor horse in the mouth when my middle aged legs give out!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I'll do it, when ever I ride by myself, ie not at lessons or on trial rides (he's still a little but green out bush)

That means I should at least be riding 2-3 times a week with no stirrups... Yay?

Haha
