Today Emily and I ghetto rigged up Hylke to a sled.
Once we established he had a grip on the long reins I drove him around.
He was a little confused I have NO balance. We had a blast. I have never had so much fun. I was soaked and muddy and euphoric. I've never done this before.
Then at the end Emily jumped on him and trotted around and I managed to stay on. Once she had him canter I lost it and you can see the camera shoot to the sky since I flew into the air.
I had so much fun. He's very verbal. Saying "Whoa" makes him stop thank GOD. Haha.
Emily only got a few clips. So it's not much. The best stuff Emily was laughing too hard to film. Like me loosing my balance and Hylke dragging me though the snow for about twenty feet. Or the once I lost my balance and fly up into the air and ate some snow.
So yeah. I'm the fat one. Emily is the one in the saddle towards the end.
It's suppose to snow Monday - Tuesday. I'm going to get a better sled. The sled we used is for little kids. Emily and I couldn't find her big huge long sled with a more curved up lip in the front. My huge fat butt hardly fit in this sled. I'm sure if it had been the nice bigger sled things would have been a little easier. Hehehe.
AND between now and whenever he sells I'm going to start ground driving him on long reins. Get him more used to the whole long reins and stuff.
No sounds on the video. Between me screaming and cussing and laughing and Emily in hysterics laughing at me I had to get the sound off.

Then on YouTube. So hopefully everyone can see it.
We can def say Hylke is bomb proof. HAAAA.
So yeah! I never got to do stupid ridiculous things when I was a kid. So I'm doing it now.
Poor Hylke. HAhahaha.
