I used to do western pleasure and barrels, so can still relate with people who ride western! I'm trying to make more of an effort to comment on here.

Hey everyone! I rode smokey bareback on a easy stroll trail ride today. First time riding in over a week! Since he skinned his leg 8 days ago. He did so good! I enjoy every moment with him, even if we are just walking. Did anyone else have a good ride?

Yup. What he said. :) Honestly it doesn't even feel like this thread is part of the forum.

Ugh. I am so mad at myself tonight. Y'all ever had a total "why the heck did you do that" moment? Yea. Put me on that list. My girls and I took a short little 1 hour trail ride this evening. It was perfect. Temp was perfect, no wind, and the horses were all on their best behavior. I even had my youngest son in the saddle with me. So we get home and the girls ask for some help unsaddling. Let me preface by noting I have this strict rule to myself that I never ever tie a horse up by the reins. Lost too many bridles that way in my 25 years of horsemanship. But it was getting dark fast and so what do I do? I skip that ever so important step of swapping to a halter real quick and tie my mare up by the reins so I could help out real quick. No problem, everything gets done, and now that it's almost dark, I turn back to my horse. I take the bridle off and hang it over the saddle horn. The reins were still tied though. I reach for the halter and go for the reins all about the same time and what does she do??? She starts backing up, feels unfamiliar pressure on the horn, and promptly spooks. My nice Amish made bridle that matches my breast collar perfectly does NOT slip off the saddle horn and shoots in pieces all over a 10ft radius. GRRRRRR! One small consolation, the reins, which I just spent $30 on, are still intact. I'm an idiot.

I am sorry to hear that happened Katja! At least the reins were saved!

Wow, that really stinks nu. DH ran into a house once because he didn't plug in his trailer brakes to move it 20 feet. $7000 truck damage and he fixed the house with one nail! Heavy trailer and muddy hills don't really mix....

Hope you feel better Cyn and all goes well with the farrier today.

I got a nice little bareback ride in on Sunday (just around the barn) on my mare. I don't do it often, especially when she's feeling her oats. Her withers don't feel very good and I'm not a good bareback rider but I want to be....
