Hahaha, wear whatever you are comfortable in! I may don shorts & flipflops, as well.
So, I hopped on Cash for a brief ride last night, just to reinforce that riding isn't the end of the world. He got much better at walking off and did a lovely little trot both ways, so I was about to get off. Then some paper blew into the round pen at the same time horses in the nearby pasture came running past, and he spooked into a little lope. Then freaked the heck out that he was cantering with a rider, and all but shut his eyes and took off at a dead run with some bronc hops thrown in. Tore around the round pen for what felt like forever before realizing he wasn't dying, and fortunately I stayed on (just barely!) Not sure which one of us was more surprised at that turn of events, but both our hearts were pounding afterwards. Made him walk, stop & back one more time, then got off on majorly shaking legs, lol.
