Thanks.. I've been soo proud of myself since it's been over 6 months, and the last horse was a big sweet heart who I wanted to buy but simply couldn't afford... I love my Pirate though... If I hadn't loped him I'd feel I'd never lope again!
Definitely know that feeling. I have only cantered on my own horse.. but before then a horse went off with me when I was trotting her into a canter then buck.. and I got pretty hurt and scared out of my mind.
Wow great pics everyone! I love seeing some of the connections that some of you have! Ill have to finish looking at the photos tomorow tho as im about to pass out. But heres a few of my gelding Cody and I, he's my heart horse, my best friend, and my partner in crime
