Bareback

I'm so excited I got to ride bareback today for the first time ever! I wrote this whole long post about it but it got erased when I went to post it. Anyway I'm excited I got to ride bareback AND I jumped AND I didn't fall off!

Congrats I just rode my boy bareback for the first time a couple weeks ago, too. It's so much fun, isn't it?

I love watching the video over and over. This time I was shaking like a leaf! I started with just trotting over the poles on the ground. Then my instructor started raising them. I told her when I first got on that I was NOT going to canter on her bareback. So when she said 'here do these and there is one stride between the last two I just thought ' you're not serious!? I'm going to fall right off!' but I trusted her and gave it a shot and it worked out. Mind you, there's not much of a release bc it's hard to do that when you have a death grip on their mane! You can actually see right before the second one where I reposition my hands to have a better grip on her mane! I was shaking like a leaf afterwards but had the biggest smile on my face

I am so jealous! I don't have a horse I feel necessarily comfortable riding at anything faster than a walk. Well, except one, but he has so many bad habits he'd easily take advantage of my noviceness.

The canter is often the easy part...It's the faster trots that'll kill you!
