Hands down - first time I cantered the Clydesdale in my avatar pic.

Riding a Clyde was on my bucket list. Finally finding a lesson barn with one and then getting to the level where I could ride him (he can be a little spunky sometimes so the beginners don't get him as an option) was amazing. The thunderous sound and the feeling of power as he took off was amazing. He's a ball to ride, sometimes when he's really into it he lets out a little playful "happy-buck" a few strides in and then hunkers down and HAULS.

Mine would probably have to be last summer, when me and my girlfriend rented horses to go for a trail with a guide. My girlfriend doesnt ride (has been on a horse 3 times), so when we got to a big field the guide told me I could go ahead and canter to the end of it if I wanted. I did, and about halfway I saw a small bush with silvery leaves on in, when I cantered past it it turned out they were not leaves but a whole swarm of dragonflies!! They flew up around me and it was really magical.

Afterwards I realized I was lucky the horse didnt spook lol.

The time my pooper lost his balance in a snow filled roadside ditch and we both fell with me breaking my collar bone.

This was best moment because my newish previosuly barn sour Aarab did not run away, but stood calm in the middle of the road looking at me. He let me get back on with my broken wing and we rode home. It was at this time that I knew we had bonded and he was gonna be my trusty mount. <3

I have been riding my horse bareback recently to gain better balance and get good bareback as I am in the saddle.
I think the best moment I have had that was good was when Brisco and I went over our little jump perfectly and went straight into three loping circles without breaking gait or misbehaving.
Another great time was when he let me lay down on him and stand up on him and do all sorts of crazy sitting positions on him while he just stood there and slept!!

Those days after work or a game or a practice is finished, things went okay to good, as we're doing that head-bobbing walk toward home (or the trailer).

See my avatar pic? That was my best moment. We went trail riding in Turks and Caicos. I got to ride this beautiful Arab mix named Dreamer.
