I am finally getting back into riding after a long funding related break! I found an add for someone in my area looking to trade riding time for barn work a few hours a week!!! Im so excited! And sore! I did my first ride today and I want to know who absconded with my leg muscles. Im so happy right now tho, I didn't realize how much I missed riding in the past. I can't figure out how to post pics from my cell so I will do so when I get home!! Posted via Mobile Device
Hey guys, so apparently its more lessons than a lease and i'll be riding a few horses depending on the day. But she wants me primarily work with this horse she had me ride yesterday. His name is mambo! He is a hanovarian and 17.3 Hands!!!!!!
He is fantastic tho!, 100% bomb proof, a sweetheart, humungous(yes I feel like that's a plus). The only problem is he goes lame sometimes and needs to have his hocks injected? At least that's what she said, so he can't do more than a little bit of trotting, but that's ok since I have no idea where my leg muscles went its not like I will be cantering any time soon, less one of you guys have seen where they went :P
I have never had a bomb proof horse, EVER! This is fantastic, I know everyone always says get a horse that challenges you, once you learn to ride, but I think when I get my own horse im going to look for a bomb proof horse as well, cause well, I love not having to worry about being thrown into a wall or fence because they are a) young and stupid B) the flightiest horse ever or C) a general all around **** head lol
And when I say bomb proof I mean it here is a recap of what happened on my last ride on him:
1. Attack of the leaves
2. A heard of 6 deer running throughout the paddocks next to the ring jumping fences
3. A horse getting loose and running all over the ring
4. Said run away horse rolling in the ring
And he didnt care!!!!! Not one bit!!!!! It was fantastic <3 on any other horse after all of that happening I would have ended up on the ground with how sucky my legs are being right now, and hell given some of the critters I have ridden in the past I most likely would have ended up on the ground anyways.
