Talking Back To Back Bareback :]

So in my 4-H club we do this class called Back To Back Bareback where 2 people get on 1 horse bareback and sit with their backs against each other. You have to walk and trot around the arena, then bring your horse to the middle and switch places with your partner. This was my first year ever doing this class. My best friend and I used her Blue Roan Quarter Horse named Blue. Here are some pics:











The only time in this class you are allowed to touch the horse with your hands is when you are switching positions. We had the whole crowd laughing. [I'm the one in green] While she's sitting on my back she goes "Uhh..What now?" Then the 4-H leader said [while laughing at us]"You're committed, you've got to go now" So she moves up to where her leg is on my neck and I hear "I can't get my leg over your head!" My face is RED by now because I can hardly breathe and I'm laughing so hard..Then she finally got it over and I slid back and turned around and was only a little bit light-headed. We were sure to win this class until Her horse moved and got off balance and down I went..Then all I could do was sit on the ground laughing.

Have you ever done or seen anythign like this?

I must say, you need some really good horses to do that. It looks like a lot of fun.

Must be nice to be young and agile! I couldn't move around like that on a horse anymore.

Haha. This is the class everyone looks forward to every year. And one thing I forgot to mention is that if you fall off, you're disqualified from the class....but that's okay we had TONS of fun anyways

ROFLMAO! I will have to use this one day! I'm working with kids and trying to find easy seeming games that show them their strengths a weaknesses! If they though the bottle race (modified flag race) was fun they will love this! How much walking/trotting is expected?
