I hung out with my cousin and another friend from church yesterday after church... They wanted to go four-wheeler-riding, but we only had one four-wheeler... so I asked them to let me drive the three of us up to the pasture so I could catch my boy Dakota, so I could ride him and they could ride the four-wheeler (I donít really enjoy four-wheelers... my best friend terrified me on her old one by flying across ditches, popping wheelies, and wrecking us into trees and I flipped mine a few years ago while trying to avoid hitting a dog and havenít really liked them since).
Anyway, I caught my gelding, but didnít have his halter or anything... I had my switchblade on me and me camera, and that was it, lol. So, I did what Iíve always been told not to do... I cut me some haystring and made a halter out of it for him so I could ride while they played on the four-wheeler. (my neighbor who breeds Walkers, when he still was able to ride, he often rode/broke his youngsters with just a haystring and always told me not to because it was too dangerous, lol... One of the very first rides I put on Dakota, I was bareback with just a haystring... Dakotaís only been ridden with just a haystring about three times, though...).
He did extremely well... we walked and trotted only, but he was perfect and kept up with the four-wheeler just fine (my cousin is a slower driver, and our friend was a little scared, so she stayed slow for her). Dakota did try to eat the metal bars on the front of the four-wheeler, though... silly boy.
I had my cousin take a few pics... sadly, I didnít get any action-shots... just standing shots, and they were taken right before I had to go home, but I like the pictures.
Hes a gorgeous boy!
I did that on my friends 'crazy' arab..they bought her for their kids who had little riding experience and the boy fell off once because she spooked and they never rode her again so when I went there to visit them we were feeding the goats and I had a hay string so I grabbed her made a halter and hoped on with no previous work she was an angel just happy to be used again... I loved riding her we even had to pony my friend back when her horse freaked and she fell off and the horse but for a arab with little work for years she was awsome :] (that was in full tack though hah)
Anyways you two look awsome
