Trail riding Gemini,
You two look great together! I'll bet NONE of those idiots that were putting you down on you tube can ride their horse bridle-less! That is quite a skill and shows a lot of work and training on your part. GOOD FOR YOU!
You should take a lot of pride in your horsey accomplishments! You deserve to be respected for your abilities as a great horsewoman :)

Jut think of posting Videos on you Tube as Casting Pearls before Swine.....
They have no idea how precious what you and your horse have is and therefore they do not , can not appreciate it :) their loss, not yours. You will find a much more appreciative audience here I'm sure :)

@ Kait18 - Thank you for the kind words! Tell your sister its mind over matter. If she doesn't mind, it doesn't matter!

Thank you soooo much for the kind words, it really means alot to me... and btw my filming secret is this..(its kinda stupid really :p ) I use the regular camera to sit on the fence to film when im not holding it, and when im riding I use my phone :P makes it easier to handle, and I don't think the quality is too bad...


But THANK YOU again!!

I think you two look great together as well. Also, about YouTube. Go ahead and put your video up on YouTube and just disable comments from your vids. That way no one can say anything at all about them and you can still share them in good quality.

well!... you convinced me :P


Heres his youtube vid...

Oh btw... everyone who comes to my barn to ride in the disabled program keeps stopping me and asking what/why I have that bag on his tail.. I have to keep explaining that he has a long tail that touches the ground and that the owner told me "you better not cut it!!" (in a hebrew accent) lol

I know exactly what you mean about having to keep the tail wrapped/bagged. My old gelding's tail would drag on the ground a good 3-6" if left unwrapped and would get all muddy and disgusting. My old gelding was a bright bay 14.2hh arab/saddlebred cross (3/4 arab and 1/4 saddlebred). I always felt like a giant on him (5'7" and 175lbs). Lol

lol.. I think the long tail is a luxury, do to the Arab side for Gem.. since he alway has his tail up... he just so cute :P but then every so often you can see that welsh side come out... like when you just look at that belly of his :P

Dancer had a long beautiful mane until just recently - I walked out of the house and saw her bare neck - have yet to figure out where her mane went - it wasn't cut, and I can't find any where that she might have rubbed it out...I think it got chewed on. Oh well - it will grow back and next year (hopefully) we'll be finished with the majority of the pasture and the horses won't be cooped up in the sacrifice lot.

Gem - you look great on your horse - and you aren't all that big. Now, I, on the other hand, am huge. I'm so glad that none of my riding buddies (most of which are NOT plus sized) are so encouraging. If they hadn't been, I'd never had had the nerve to get on Dancer at all, let alone ride on a trail ride!

I can't wait until I can find a saddle that meets three basic criteria: 1) fits my hard to fit horse; 2) fits my fat backside and 3) I can afford on my measly budget. All because I rode on that trail one time, and have an obsessive desire to do it again and again and again!

Good luck with that search, you know you are going to have to settle for two out of three don't you? Either it will fit both of your perfectly, but you'll need a bank loan to pay for it. OR, it will cost the right amount, fit your horse, but not you.

Third option can't happen, cost the right amount, fits you but not your horse, the only one you wont do
