Here's my dare - pat my horse! MUAHAHAHAHA!
Given I can't even see my horse at the moment I'll reminisce for a second and make note of the ones I have done (on Brock) and the ones I haven't:
. Sit to the trot - Yep!
. Ride without stirrups - Yep!
. Wave a piece of long material over your horse (it can not spook) - Yep! (On Brock too! Yay me
. Dismout your horse while it is walking - Yep!
. Ride bareback - Yep...once...
. Run with your horse as fast as you can - Yep! (I can't run very fast though
. Take a video or picture while mounted on your horse - Yep! (Photo)
. Ride through a tunnel made out of trot polls - Yep!
. Canter on a loose rein - Yep!
. Do 5 trot poles - Nope - done 4, never thought to do 5
. Ride your horse bareback in a paddock - Yep...once...
. Put your arms up while ridng bareback for over 10 seconds - Nope! EEP!
. Try to Canter to walk as well as you can - Yep (Brock loves this, lazy b*stard!)
. Walk to Canter as well as you can - Yep
. Ride your horse through water - Yep, but only tried large puddles so far
. Canter between at least 3 cones/markers - Nope, Brock would go on strike (too much work) but I have done on other horses
. Rise to the trot bareback - Ouch! Nope
. Do 10 trot poles - Nope
. Teach your horse to give you a hug - Yep!!
. Jump of your horse while your horse is in water - No thanks! Lol
. Jump of your horse (probably should be in an enclosed area and be holding a long lead rope connected to your horse, or some one is holding your horse) - depends on the definition of jump
. Gallop your horse - Not Brock, far too much effort, but plenty of others
. Jump bareback at least 50cm - AGH NO!
. Do 20 trot poles - Nope! That's a lot!
. Canter to walk only 1 stride of trot allowed - Yep
. Walk to Canter only 1 stride of trot allowed - Yep, well I do them without a trot stride
. Teach your horse to bow - Nope, and never will. He gives me enough trouble at hoof-picking time
. Ride your horse with a partner - Partner being riding partner? Or life partner? Done both
. Canter between at least 8 cones/markers - Not on Brock, but on others (yay games!)
. Stand on top of your horse - Nope, not a fan of this
. Dismount a horse while it is trotting - Yep! Handy skill LOL
. Ride tackless in all the gaits (can ride with a piece of rope as a rope gives signals just like our body does.. and where not a piece of tack we r human lol) - Nope, would very much like to try though (probably NOT on Brock)
. Jump higher than 60 cm bareback - AAAAAAGGHHH!!!
. Ride your horse bridleless - Nope (not while the ORS is my lifesaver LOL)
. Ride your horse while dragging something behind it - Nope
. Ride your horse bridleless/tackles over a jump - NOPE!
. Ride your horse bridleless/tackless between polls - Nope
. Ride your horse tackless in a field or paddock (that would be very dangerous if you didn't have enough experience for that) - Nope
. Do a fancy move bridelless (doesn't have to be completely correct horse can show just a couple of seconds of the move) - Nope
. Do extended trot bareback - Nope
. Have your pet ride your horse (i wouldn't just all of a sudden do this) - I used to have fish, I don't think it would have worked out well for them
