Now THIS is pretty cool.

Any pictures? Video? I'd love to see it.

i will try to get some pics and a video! I need to practice a bit more though, rena likes to stop when I stand up, or speed up, so one she learns just to stay the same, and I can stand for more then half a circle i'll get a video! Hahaha

I don't stand on my horses back because I think it's cool or anything I just do it because it's fun! , plus I love doing anything that involves playing with Relan. That's just me. If I fall off then that's my problem I wouldn't really care.

I would love to see that video of you trying to canter on a horses back!! That's so cool(:

I too agree that it's a horse trader scheme but I use it when I have full trust in my horse, and I also am teaching myself to roman ride ;D

I value my life too much. I wouldn't ever trust a horse to do it. And all I do is cringe when I see other people do it.

^ I should probably be a little more nervous... but today I tried standing again, I stood there for a few seconds, lost my balance and hit the dirt and rolled as rena cantered around. Hahaha I was getting changed to get into bed tonight and about half the arena dirt fell out of my pants.

Its a gimmick for traders.

I do it because I get bored, and being a teenager I like to do stupid things. I would love to think of it as a desensitization excersize, which to a certain extent it is, but there are better things I could be doing. Ignore my grammar, another stupid teenage thing. Also a sleep deprivation thing
