Wow, Horse racer, first you go on an awesome trail and then you get to try something new like jumping? I ride English and I think it's super fun. I like the saddles more than I like western saddles. I have never ridden western, just walked and trotted around a little bit with a western saddle. I want to try it sometime. But jumping is really fun! I don't think anything could beat that. Also, bareback trail riding is super fun, you'll like it for sure! My horse gets excited on trails so I have to hang on really tight, but it just adds to the adventure.

Alright, but it might look bad since I haven't ridden in and English saddle before haha. Will it look weird with me wearing a cowboy hat and wearing cowboy boots in an English saddle? Haha

Sit tall in the saddle, hold your head up high. Keep your eyes fixed where the trail meets the sky. And live like you ain't afraid to die. Don't be scared, just enjoy your ride - Chris LeDoux

I ride bareback everywhere more than I do with a saddle. :)

The other day I was loping on Brandy and she twisted her head around suddenly to get a horsefly and of course then her body followed her head real quickly and boom! I went flying and hit the fence. Lost my balance. I got back on though. It didn't scare me, it just hurt. Second time I've been de-horsed.

And earlier today the new Mustang cow kicked me in the hip... ouch. I'm handing that problem over to my trainer to deal with.

Haha, have you seen pictures of me riding english?! I'm pretty sure you can't get any more hillbilly than me!

Since I'm not on my own computer, I don't have any pictures, but here's a thread to prove it.. So I Switched...

I have my first jumping lesson back on tuesday after being in the hospital for two weeks and taking a while more off of doing anything. I am finally feeling good enough to get back too jumping. :) It's also going to be on one of the new sale horse's from Europe I am excited.

Off topic: Have any of you ever watched Duck Dynasty? I own the first two seasons. Love that show! It's hilarious, has guns, and I also love that they all are strong Christians. :)

I've seen it once, it's great. I wish I could see it again but we don't have any TV anymore so I can't :(. But it's a good show and like you said, it's hilarious, has guns, and they're all Christians. So those three things makes it awesome! :)

Sooo... I was out riding bareback on Rusty, not even thinking of the new pavement they had recently layed when he slipped and we fell. He landed on my leg and I broke both bones in it. Talk about pain. Had surgery, and now have a rod and some pins in my leg, oh the joys. Major depression now, wont be able to ride for 3-4 months. I miss Rusty like crazy and cannot wait to ride again... Can NOT wait to ride. Its a week in now, and dying the slow death of pony withdrawls. Miss you bub <3 Be out their on crutches soon ;)
