Riding any style

I practice NH, I am not a fanatic but I do admit I use NH. I hear soooo much that people are against NH because many, most, or certain NH people do not ride their horses.

I ride, and have posted recent pictures of me riding, even though I am fat, old, and not 'correct for showing'. I have boarded at 5 or 6 barns, none of which are 'NH' barns and at every one of them there have been people who do not ride their horses. These non-riders have not necessarily been NH people.

So I feel that certain people of any style of horsemanship do not ride their horses. Do you ride? (you = any individual, any style) If so please post a picture.

The strap around the top of your horse's legs should be around his chest, justa smidge below the V in his neck.

That was a test ride for the strap, the one and only time I used it.

Also the only recent pics I have of me riding, I usually ride alone.

Do you have a pic of you riding, I'm hoping for about 24,000 single photo replies.

I would guess that most people that have horses ride. But who knows anymore! Anyway, this is me. Yes, I suppose tie-dye and chinks is an interesting combination, isn't it? :lol:

What a great picture, you and your horse and gear look so much at home in your 'element'. I mean that as a compliment, don't know if I found the right word.

Do you get to just ride off your property into a backdrop like that, or do you haul out to different places a lot?

It would be nice to see a bunch of pics of people just riding in their own style, rather than for prizes.

I'm still trying to figure out where in AZ you are, THR! That vista looks like I should know where it is! lol

I don't ride my horse right now, but for very VALID reasons! lol Up until a week or two ago, he wasn't broke. He'd had a saddle on, but hadn't had any ride time. Now, he's technically just about ready for me to ride. The biggest reason I don't ride right now is because I severely sprained my ankle when I was thrown from another boarder's horse (LONG story) and I'm currently in a walking cast (aka-CAM boot), so riding is impossible. :-( As soon as this stupid boot is off, you can bet your bahookie I'll be up in that saddle!

I also don't have pics of me riding any horse because I'm usually the one behind the camera (don't like my picture taken) and the only picture I do have of me horseback is stuck on my other (non-functioning at the moment) laptop.

Thanks to the overnight posters Tiny, Drafty and Thyme. Hopefully others are planning to get their camera's out and dispell any notions that they are among the so called 4F group.

Drafty - I'm counting on at least one more post here as soon as you are cast free.

No fear here - of horses OR camera's.
