We are getting ready to head out to the rodeo. We have a PBR event that happens the 2nd Saturday of every month at a farm about 30 minutes from here. Bull riding and barrel racing. I love going and look forward to it every month. Lots of action...plus funnel cake!
Alex, I am glad that he will not be coming back to you. That could have ended up very badly.
Nvr, I love riding bareback but since I have only been riding 4 years, I only ride bareback in the arena or around the farm. One day I would love to take one of the trails and try it out. Isabella rarely spooks so I think we would be ok..just need to get my confidence up a bit.
FC, I have a cheaper bb pad, one of those fleece ones. Mine is bright blue. I feel,pretty secure on it. I, too, have heard never to use a bb pad with stirrups because they can cause a false sense of security. My knees hurt really bad after a while since my legs just hang there so I could see how stirrups could come in handy.
CW...hope you are enjoying your new home.
Stan....ginger nuts, huh? So many things I could say. LOL
Time for some pics. I am on my ipad so have to post one at a time. Here is Isabella and hubby's horse, Scuffy having a great time grazing today.
