So tonight was a GREAT night with my boy. And before anyone starts yelling at me about what I did, I know all that can happen with a young horse. What I did I know did NOT hurt him what so ever!!
Anyway...Tonight friend of mine who is younger and rides the BO's horse caught a ride with me to the barn. We started just playin with the horses being goof balls lol. She decided to call it a day and to go clean her saddle, I kept playing with Traum a bit.
I decided to get him used to a bit of weight on his back, so I stood on the mounting block and kind of laid over him petting him and such, so he could get used to someone being on both sides. If he took a step I stayed on then slid off. Well I wen to show my friend that Traum was being such a good boy with this. She then said well why not actually sit on him? Mind you I have no saddle on him. So I decided to do so for a couple mins. She stood by his head, and I slid onto him. He didn't move!!! I was so excited! Then my friend started walking him a bit, we did about 2 laps of the areana, which is small because of a fire in the other half. Traum did nothing!! Can't belive he's doing such a good job.
Just had to let whoever actually looks at this know! Like I said before, nothing of this hurt him, and it is not something I am going to do often. The next time I am going to do this is probably a month from now.
