Oh yea! I hate it LoL as a kid I could ride anything and often would, which of course resulted in lots of green rides and luckily no broken bones but many falls and "omg I really did that" moments. But I could stay on anything
I rode my mare for 30 mins today and didn't trot but she was a crow hopping mess so I sure got a work out. Wind+spring+not worked enough= bad idea LoL but luckily we got through it and my trainer (not the lady I'm getting lessons from but my horse's trainer) was there to help us out. I sat a full buck, thank god it was only one and a few crow hops. Amazing how when you focus too hard you fail at it but when you risk getting thrown your butt turns to super glue. OMG do I HURT right now LoL So good and bad day
I'm going to try to ride on my own every other day. I have my mare, an OTTB, and 2 old retired QH ranch geldings to ride so I'll be working on my seat a lot now that the ground is defrosted.
I'm so determined to get back to where I was. I miss tearing across an open field at a full lope, racing nothing but the wind. I miss being in the open range, I miss cutting cows, I miss being able to enjoy the full freedom of riding a horse
I can't wait! Posted via Mobile Device
