Scout's first ride at home!
 
It's so wonderful knowing I can come out and ride MY horse at any time!!!
I got on him today. Scout has never been in a real arena before(oh no, big scary colorful things!) He was mostly a trail horse and sometimes was ridden in a muddy field. I walked him around the arena yesterday on a lead to let him sniff things out and see what the whole thing was about.
He did GREAT today! No spooking at the colors or anything. What a good man. All we did was about 30 minutes of walking and mayyyybee 2 of trotting. Basically I want him to get used to the idea we'll be riding in this giant sandy thing. Still working on the mounting block thing!
Enough rambling, heres the pictures! Sorry, no action shots.

What on earth are you guys talking about? I feel like I'm the only one who isn't 'getting it' haha

NB is mocking me because I'm using the BO's western saddle :b
I haven't gone tack shopping yet, hopefully tomorrow afternoon!

Northernstar 02-15-2013 08:23 PM

Ohhhh! Gotcha! NB would keel over if she saw how I sometimes ride around my wilderness property with an english saddle, nylon halter/rope reins, or rope halter/rope reins, or bareback/western bridle... haha It's true! Although I do own all of the appropriate english/western tack, I love a more 'natural' riding style, and I can tell my horses do too! Besides, it's so remote here, there's no one to care how I ride except the wildlife :)

*You know I'm teasing you, NB - I think your style of riding is nice and I'll bet you're wonderful at it!

Hey i'm guilty of just hooking barrel reins to my horses halter and messing around bareback in the woods. I'm far from a prissy english rider lol. Plus I also do barrel race and do western games :wink:

The kids at the barn laugh because the only time I "clean up" is for a clinic or show. My mares mane is half way down her neck :lol:
