Also, please wear a helmet. I know a very experience horsewoman who fell off while mounting (her horse spooked). If it hadn't been for her helmet, she would have died. As is, she lost a lot of her memory and couldn't ride for months. Where your horse has been off for a while, he's probably a little full of it at times!
I understand ur concern but like I stated before my horse is never full of it and he hasnt spooked at anything in 3 yrs! I've taken him everywhere and doesnt care. He is the only horse i'd ever take this risk with. But thanx for the advice, it was hard to keep my thumbs up bc I was off for a month and a half bc of carpel tunnel so it was hurting to keep them up i'm working on strengthening my wrists more again.
