Actually I see more of the opposite. Their confidence is less than their ability. But then again I don't deal with others and riding on a daily basis.

Edit: Most of the ones I do deal with are beginners that I have to convince they can do it.

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

This is for the Children: If your younger than 18 YEARS OLD like me ASK YOUR GUARDIAN FOR PERMISSION BEFORE DOING THESE DARES.



Why do people do such activities like Show Jumping, Cross country, Barrel racing, Racing (being a jockey),Dressage, Camp drafting, Western Pleasure and all the other horse riding related sports ? Why do people do this ? When these sports can cause life threateningh injuries and death ? its for the adrenalin rush and horse riding is essentially a dare. Horse riding is a dare that you dont fall of, that you can jump an obstacle without knocking the pole down, The dare to make those tight upturns around the barrels without knocking them down.
Horse riding is essentially a dare, every one isnt using horses as just vehicals they are animals that are used in sport for all the dares and activities you can possibly do. If we all had complete common sense horses would only be ridden for trtansportation and every one wouldnt do horse riding as a sport because it would be to dangerous.

I ride my horse tackless and i feel so much safer than jumping 90 cm, these dares are not just a dare but they are based on the training and trust between horse and rider.

I put my complete trust in my horse when i rode tackless for the first time, and i felt so happy and safe, it didn't feel like a dare but a harmonious communication between beast and human.

I wrote this on an ipad.

I am glad you put the under 18 thing in there.

And yes, I grew up on the race track, and do both s/j and c/c and eventing. I am well aware of the risks. However I don't dare anyone to try something that they might not otherwise do. Of course horse riding is dangerous, that in part is why we do it, rather than ride a bike. We like the fact that a horse has a mind of its own.

Not one of our photos but off FB. There was a funny comment about which one was wearing the helmet.

Here's a recent vid we did:

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:

Group 1:
. 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

Group 2:
. 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!!

Group 3:
. 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!)


Group 4:

. 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

Ok guys I am not participating in this contest, but ill just post some videos and pictures, doing these dares i have done, That have all worked out marvellously. This will also keep this post some where at the top so others can join :) omg i dont even know if what i have types up makes sense... went to sleep and relaxed in paddock for 4 hours and didn't bring my lunch so blood sugar is still low. Doesn't help when your addicted to fruit and fruit drinks either !
