@tyler: yes, very cool(: good luck with your oakey!
I made a list of why I have never had a successful double bareback ride:
2-my friends balance
3-our ability to laugh so hard we can't stand up, let alone ride
4-my horses BOUNCY trot.
Haha, we are still working on it! But its on the bucket list for a good reason I guess(:
As for bareback solo, SO MUCH FUN! Last weekend I went on my first trail ride in the snow(well, snow flurries!) and jumped a 3 foot coop! It was a blast
