When I was much younger, growing up on 40 acres of land, I never had my own horse.

There was an APHA breeder in my area, who bred beautiful paints out of his award winning stud named Mr. Willy Nelson. All his Mares and younglin's would be in this HUGE massive pasture by our house all Spring, Summer and Fall - and I would quite frequently be over there giving the lucky one's apples and carrots *lucky meaning I didn't have 50 apples to share, only a few*

Here's the "crazy" part.......

I started to ride the "bigger" one's without stopping and thinking "Is this horse broke?" "Is this horse safe?" etc, etc.

I made makeshift halter/bridles out of clothes wire *the blue plastic stuff* and would walk up to a horse, put it on and hopped on and rode for hours.

I certainly had a guardian angle hanging around, because A) I was very young B) Hopping on strange horses with know knowledge or thought to their training

I trail rode for hours in that huge massive pasture - I'm lucky I didn't get hurt, or shot off by the owner..or caught for that matter.

I was 9? Somewhere around there....

I walked under my Norman's belly once. I'm such a rebel.

My mom was doing his bridle path one day and for some goofy reason, she only had him on one cross tie. He was standing diagonally and his big tooshy was plugging up the whole isle. I had my hands full with Vic's tack and I needed to get to the other side where Vic was cross tied. So I put the saddle on Normy's back and snuck under his belly. Norman probably didn't even notice. Lol

I know someone that has had their horse light on fire :0 haha but it was all ok, the hrose wasnt even freaked out.
Haha I havent done that, my horse would hold a grudge if I let her light on fire!
I tryed standing on her back, but I think the craziest one was the day that I bought her (i hadnt ever ridden her) I got on bareback and bridless. Haha I've olled off my horse (like a summersault down the saddle) haha my poor horse, I tortue her with love and my weirdness everyday

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

I rode both my mares like an indian! You just grab some mane, slip right, further andfurther, until you can't be seen. Like the Plains Indians durng war. I can do it at a full gallop! Yeah, I'm stupid:)
