I'm glad that I could inspire you! Everyone else makes it look so easy in the arena then we get out there and look like bafoons. That's our favorite part. (: We are going to try really hard to take home that blue ribbon next year, I will be sure to post!

Haha, awesome vid! In a world where everyone is so obsessed with safety, it's almost a guilty pleasure to just watch kids be KIDS! The horse is obviously just one of those gentle souls where you're more likely to get hurt because she tripped then because she did anything mean spirited! We have a half Mustang mare like that, we try EVERYTHING on her and she's just an angel!

We do absolutely everything with our horses, and we gets tons of compliments because you can jump on them from every direction, crawl underneath them, and do tricks hanging off their sides. We like owning quiet horses we don't have to panic over because a small child ran underneath! Obviously you don't WANT that to happen and avoid it, but things happen and I like preparing my horses for EVERY instance!

Here's a vid of us jumping Dove back to back bareback, haha!



We had tried on Flika first, and she was having no part of it as can be observed by THIS video:



And attempting our flying swing up!


And failing:


And trying on Dove and failing horribly:


Yeah, we have fun!

It's funny because we've been told we're lunatics and we have a death wish but it seems so silly. We're both farm raised and farm tough - we've HAD the accidents, the hammered thumbs, the broken bones. I've been around horses long enough that I'm fairly confident goofing off with our virtually bombproof backyard horses is LESS dangerous then doing top level eventing for example. It's all in perspective - obviously I'm not going to run out and do this to my 3 year old! Though she IS coming along nicely, and is going to turn out to be another quiet and unflappable horse!

Oh, and here's Shay-las video of her attempt at tricks! Haha, I haven't tried any yet, I'm not very athletic!

well that looks like such fun! Shay-la must be crazy though! i'd love to try it and i have al lthe faith and trust in the world in my horse! but not in my own muscles to hold me up like that ahaha! i can barely mount bareback from the ground. i'm sure it takes lots of practice. you girls are lucky to be farm raised too! that was my dream childhood. and i didn't get my first horse until 2 years ago. but seeing how i ride and interact with her you'd think i'd known her years. is she doing the tricks with just a normal western saddle? cuz i may try em.. if i dare.. lol

How do you get your saddle to stay put? I have the worst time with my saddle staying put for just normal mounting sometimes, and when I tighten it I feel like I'm going to cut my horses in half [I don't really tighten it too tight.. I made that mistake once]..But they fit properly and blah. It's frustrating!

Well it helps that she's only 120 pounds soaking wet! I am a 200 pound girl and that is essentially why I am typically the "rider" and not the "trickster" when we are up to our shenanigans. I feel bad just mounting, nevermind trying tricks!

Yes, she's using a normal Western saddle. She really wants a trick saddle, but she's waiting for that, haha.

Macabre your videos are hilarious!

I'm perfectly fine with people fooling around on their [bombproof] horses. What I'm NOT okay with is people doing things that can hurt a horse more than you. (There's a whole thread about this in the videos section.) And general people being stupid and putting the horse in danger. Which you guys, mostly, do not.
