Vaulting on bareback!!
SUCCESS!!! I vaulted onto Dobe for the first time ever bareback tonight. I haven't been able to vault in years. :shock: I guess that means I have either lost weight or somehow, built up some more muscle in my arms. I will try to get a video sometime tomorrow just to see if I look as graceful as I felt (if not, ya'll will at least get a good laugh out of it). The first time, he kinda boogered a bit and his head came up but after that, he would stand like a statue. I am so happy that I can now go for rides and not worry about only stopping in places with stumps to climb on. :D

Congrats! That's a hard thing to accomplish for most people! :D

Oooohhh...videos are a must; or atleast pics...I don't have the strength in my wrists to ever try vaulting, so hats off to you :D

Okay, got a little video tonight of me and him. I am not quite as graceful as I was hoping but......

Please forgive Dobe. He is a really nice ranch/trail horse but doesn't get much arena type work. He is not real comfortable doing circles, especially when the barn is right there. LOL. I know my form is crappy but that is how I am comfortable and since I don't really worry much about how we look, it is not a big deal.

Well, it helps that he is only 14.3. Haha, I would have an impossible time trying to get on 16hh Duchess like that. LOL

lol. I would need a pony 14.3 is still to tall for me haha. If i tried with duchess she would probably look at me laugh.

Aw, that is awesome! :D Haha, I've attempted getting on Daytona bareback with no help, but it didn't quite go so well. LOL, I failed! :lol:
Very nice!

Wow...That is really cool. I don't think I could ever vault myself up on a horse. I am 4'11" so it would be impossible even with the smallest pony.
