    I probably won't have any pictures of me riding as I have no photographer but myself, but I'll sure have pictures of him in his bareback pad and from on his back .

    I envy you guys. We are destroying out house this November, and I think my horse will be lucky to get fed. Really wish I could join you in this awesome endeavor.

    You owe me wine lady! I rode both nags in HAIL sans stirrups. Bloody worse than my hour workout this morning!

    I've heard of no shave November but not no stirrups November! Oh boy sounds dreadfully too tempting to not give it a try. I mostly ride a greenie so if I get some bumps and bruises, I'm calling you out on that wine offer puck! ;)

    Now now ladies. I merely dangled the carrot and presented the challenge. The decision to participate or not is yours alone. You might be cursing my name now, but get back to me when you win your next show or get that break through 8 score on rider position at your next dressage test! This is my first year too. I just wanted other to share my self imposed misery. I didn't think I would get so many takers.

    I think I'll make my 11 year old do this. (*evil laugh*)

    We've been working on her balance and softening her hands, but this challenge could really motivate her to keep at it. Maybe I'll offer her a big reward if she does it. ;)

    I'm in for sure on my gelding. Not so sure on the pony, I don't think I can avoid popping her in the mouth with the trot she currently favors. Since we're working on not leaning and bracing, I don't want to be messing with her mouth. Lol (Good excuse, I mean, err REASON, right?)
