    If you ride well enough, you don't have to pay. I am a student and currently am an exercise rider for Friesians.. I am not overly confident about my riding. But with all my training and experience I have had both on and off horses makes me a hot commodity. I ride for people that need to have a horse with more miles, and most the time its free for me. People are astonished that I would be willing to ride for them without asking for a penny... and I am astonished that they arn't asking me for anything. Though the thing to be weary about is its usually young horses or horses that have been sitting for a while, you have to be safe and you'll fall. People pick you cause you bounce. PM me if you want to know more, I got slightly distracted.

    As for falling, I used to not come off. Like someone said, when the horse gets pushy my bum just glues to the horse. I was doing riding for a little pony that was walk walk crow hop walk walk hop hop... which would have been peachy, but he was so FAT that none of our saddles fit him so, we rode him bareback... Whenever I came off him, it was by choice, and usually when I was slipping anyhow.

    I hadn't fallen for numerous years until this last few months, I fell off my leased horse when she tripped. I was using her owners saddle, and it didn't fit me. I summersaulted off, and she looks down at me, with dirt in her nose. "I really didn't mean...are you okay... why are you down there...I loves you..." cuttest horse face ever. Got a bruise about the size of a mango on my fat.

    Previously mentioned that I am an exercise rider for a Friesian breeder, I was riding their Hafflinger, who was covered in showsheen, and I was drooling over how nice her back looked and tried bareback.. turns out she had never been rode in bareback, and didn't like the idea, so took a turn pretty quick, and off I come... It was like a furry slip and slide.

    Haha yeah I know I have seen many opportunities in the classifieds for my area for people to ride horses for free... but I'm not at that level. Most of the time they are green...and the ads ask for a "confident and experienced rider" I have neither of those things.. nor do many people want someone whose only been riding for 5 months on thier horse's backs. I can't handle anything that has any sort of problem.... Any horse I ride has to be totally calm.. with no vices or quirks and have some idea what it's doing.


    So for the time being.. until I am a better rider.. Theres not much I can do but take lessons.

    .... I think falling off a 13 hh pony wouldn't be too bad :)


    .... BTW. Lets go for a trail ride sometime. Text me!
    Totally! She's pretty easy to fall off. You've ridden her. She's built downhill and you're always hall off to begin with. But the dirt isn't far and she stops dead in her tracks. Falling off her is fun. I use to do it on purpose when I was younger.

    I didn't even bother moving them. I like the barn too much and after thinking about it I decided I'd rather stay there until the weather is horribly bad. Greylite isn't lame anymore. On top of that though I lost my phone. AGAIN. I am terrible with it. I think I'd be best off getting an old ghetto land line phone. At least than I'd never loose the darn bugger.

    Umm I don't think I've ever fell.once my horse lightning got spooked and I kinda slid off(i was bareback).then my other horse fell(she tripped on something) and she got tangled in a smooth wire fence.with me on her.some how I went over her head and landed on the ground with her hip on my legs.i she wasnt hurt but I had a shoulder injury from nocking it on a fence post.all I remember was her going down and me seeing her nose.i think it was a miracle I wasnt killed.but hey I didnt fall my horse did so does that still count???

    I had my first fall from cutter 2 weeks ago, I was galloping him in a feild on my barn property and there was a hidden mound of dirt and cutter tripped, flipped over, and fell, and I fell next to him. Though I have no memory of me hitting the ground. I woke up in the grass and my face litterally had a stream of blood pouring down onto my halfchaps and pants. The neighboors rushed me to the ER and a friend took care of my horse and now all I have is stitches across my chin, chipped tooth and bruised hand, and cutters completely fine except a scrape on his leg. God must have been with me and cutter that day :)
    Just thought id share a story
