Nvr2many - we ride bareback throughout the winter pretty much exclusively. That means for seven months we just jump on and go. Often we ride in a halter and don't even bother with a bridle. It is much warmer and more convenient than riding with a saddle when it is cold and snowy.

AnotherHorseDad - congratulations on your new horse. If you really want to bug your daughter just tell her you will ride her horse for her until she is better. She will love that! LOL!

CritterSitter - I have grass envy!!

Congrats another horsedad. Pictures are a must. I just started riding bareback again. Working on my balance. I used to spend 10 hours a day bareback taking out trail rides. Awfully wobbly right now lol. Hoping to ride today. Work day at barn tomorrow as we have to fix the fencing in the field so we can finally start putting the horses out. Then BBQ after so gotta make my famous potato salad

Congrats AHD and you can't leave the horse alone for 7 weeks. You have to try it out for size.

AlexS your last post was tame. Not your norm.

Bare back, tried it. Jumped on (thats hard to imagine, more like climbed) and rolled straight off the other side Horse looked down at me with that question in its eye. (You again). I could swear the **** thing laughed at me.

When I was a kid (55) years ago, on my uncles farm I rode an old Clyde called Dolly. She creaked as she walked and would not hurt a fly.

I would take her along side a fence strainer post. I would then procede to climb onto the top of the post. Ballanced precariously I would stretch a leg out to straddle old Dolly and she would side step. That left me one foot on her rump and the other on the post doing the splits. I used to wear shorts every where as a 10 year old. Every thing was pointing in the direction the rest of me was about to go. Down. And Dolly, she always had her head turned in, looking at me, a twinkle in her eye. Her little bit of fun before the ride. That became a right of passage she made me take if I wanted to ride her.

I got over the pain and embarrassment. I can still remember my aunt and uncle roaring with laughter Thanks to god, instant cameras or phone cameras wearn't around then.

Pit party is that the discription of a hole in the ground where hot stones are placed, meat on top and covered in for a number of hours to steam. If so we call that a Hungi. The NZ Maori used that as a triditional cooking method as do the pacific islanders.

Rick. A split screen now that is the answer to trying to remember who said what. I'm going to look into that.

Cheers all.

Congrats AHD on the horse! Nice looking animal! Your DD looks happy!

Beautiful day today...a bit cool and windy so I decided to take a walk instead of ride. Could really use the exercise....although Rainn tends to walk v-e-r-y slow....

Anyway, I was able to play around and get some good shots. Take a look at this perty girl!!

Oh, and Stan.....your story cracked me UP!!!! You told it so well, I could picture it like I was there. You aRe quite the story teller!!! I bet you're fun to sit around the fire with!

Ok, CS posted a fluffy tail....who else?? ����
