you both look like you have been riding for 3 years non-stop. I know you don't like wearing a helmet but if you were over here in hull and someone saw you riding a horse without a helmet you get fined. My cousin was riding her horse in the sand manage outside without a hat on (she trusted her horse with her life) then her horse just freaked out for no complete reason and she fell off wacked her head on the fence post, she was on intensive care for 5 months before she came out of her coma.
My auntie got the vet down, farrier everyone to come and check the horse over and nothing was wrong with him, he just flipped and went mad.
A horse is a living thing it can change its mind and flip in a matter of seconds.
By the way, you and your horse look natural even after that month and a half break off :) keep it up :p
Once a ride, forever a friend!!
