I took off the stirrups today, and I won't see them till December 1st *cries* Yesterday my instructor had me do 15 minutes work without stirrups... Does that count?!

Hm.. sounds very good, however, depends how often I ride at home. As lately it has been too wet, so he has only been lunged a few times, and the rest is trails - no way I am going there with no stirrups. But very tempting to do at least a few short rides Maybe even try one tomoro

I'm off to a bad start. I rode on Nov 2nd and didn't realize it was ALREADY November!

I did mosey around on one of the old mares bareback if that counts lol
I'll have to ask my instructor for my Tuesday lessons if I can do no stirrup lessons...I think the others in my group might hate me though if I ask that haha!

Good luck everyone!!

Well. I got a bareback ride in today - its -6*C with the wind howling. I hopped on Old Peanut and trotted my herd up to the waterer lol. I even have proof.

The rest of the herd in the background there and Squiggs and Ginger being loners and staying cuddled up to the round bale "shelter".

I was planning on riding around a bit more, but the wind blew right through me and I ditched lol.

I get points for trying?

I don't get my horse back 'til December. ):! So, I might have to partake in Drop Your Stirrups December ;)

Good luck, y'all! Loving the pics!

The sensitivity of the internet baffles me.

Gotta be honest...haven't been able to ride bareback or stirrup-less on cash every time since we're working on some balance for him. But I have been trying to ride stirrup less part of the time every ride or bareback :)

Today is a nice rainy day (my favorite) so we had a light bareback work out in the pasture and through the trees, with our sidekick

Hope yall have nice rides this week!
