Giggle.

*Slaps Indy for her obvious bad role modeling in the area of safety.
HEY!! *lol* I was wearing boots!! She is still in the process of getting her horse gear, in fact we were searching for the right pair of boots for her yesterday! Seriously! I think she's narrowed her choice down to either a pair of Justin Gypsy's or a pair of Ariat Canyons.

In all fairness, I didn't know I was going to be riding, I thought Natalie was going to ride and I was going to watch, hence the flip flops! Sorry for the flips flops, I will never ride in them again!

*LMAO* Tracie, I think they are teasing you about the flip flops!! I'm sure we've all done it on occasion.

He is so cool! What a unique, one of a kind sot of guy. I just have to mention again how sweet your son is with Misty. That pony looks so sweet!

Don't feel bad, Tracie. I've even ridden *gasp* barefooted! And you have a beautiful seat for someone just starting out! :) And Indy! He's a total doll!

Wow. Tracie, don't worry, we have all done it and one of the biggest risks is getting a toe stepped on LOL (though with Claymore, that might mean amputation ;p). You have a fantastic seat, especially considering how new you are to riding. You are a complete natural and I know lots of people who would give their eyeteeth to sit a trot so well .

Indy, HOLY CRAP! I didn't realize that Claymore was so wide. On horses like that, it feels like trying to sit astride the dining room table LOL. He is such an absolute darling and you have done a wonderful job with him. You did so good on his trot, would you like to come visit and work on Johns? LOL

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Just wanted to say "thank you" for all the nice compliments! Wait until I fall off I might need some words of encouragement, that's if I survive the fall.

I AM STEALING HIM! He is such a big beautiful MONSTER of a horse! I am in love with that trot!

And pffffft - I spent my entire childhood working and riding barefoot. It was easier then trying to avoid getting cow poop and horse poop and pig poop on my shoes. All my toes are accounted for!

And I will chime in - for a newbie, you have a fantastic seat and posture! You look very natural in the saddle, glad you're enjoying it so much!
