Congrats on your first real ride!!! How old is Comet?
I got my mare at 3 yrs. old with 30 days of riding, that was over 7yrs. ago now. For the first 3 yrs. I rode her with her rope halter and a bareback pad, I did work with her for about a month in the round pen first before taking her out like that, getting her whoa and knowing she would stop when asked. Now I ride her with a saddle (90%) and a biteless bridle, we trailer our horses to different areas to ride, we have crossed rivers, gone on high ridges over looking valleys, steep up/down trails, through the bush.......it's too bad summer ended so soon this year LOL looking forward to more riding next year. We also go camping with our horses and meet friends at different equine camp sites......we don't ride too much in the winter anymore....we must be getting old LOL
My horses are the joy in my life.....
