I used to bomb around our local pony clubs x country course bareback on my arab without a bridle! She had twine around her neck. Insanity? I think so. I often wonder where the heck my mother was.
AH HA HA! You had an angel behind you, same with me when I was growing up.

There was a large pasture beside my house that ran into our property, whom the owners bred APHA's and every Spring all the way to when the snow first fell, they kept their Brood Mare's and their babies out there.

I would make makeshift "bitless bridles" out of hay bale twine, and go out and hop on whatever mare would let me get close enough to put that contraption on them.

I never once thought "is this horse broke?" "How broke is this horse" "What could or will happen to me?"

Nope. I just hopped on and went for a ride. Did it everyday.


The things we did when we were young. Looking back, I wonder how I stayed alive.

Grow up.

I was 9, 10 and 11 at the time - you think I knew anything about a trainer then?

I was bonkers as a child. Angel indeed. That horse wasn't really broke. No one else could catch her. No one else could ride her. She babysat me like no other. I thank her every time I get the chance for not killing me.

Sounds like your horse was the Angel :)
