..today my hubby and I are going for a decent trail ride in the evening when it cools down. We like to sleep in Anyways,in other posts I mentioned that I would like to trail ride in my english saddle but had a fear of it as I thought I might fall off. Well recently I have fallen due to a freak accident. It was no one's fault and I was in my english saddle. Kinda makes me wonder if I will be able to do it in my english saddle today but there is only one way to find out so today is the day. I am bringing my camera and taking pictures of our ride so all of you can see. Should be interesting and hopefully I live.
I DID IT! It was so much fun and I stayed on the whole time. I cantered,2 hand galloped,and trotted. I was so comfy in it! I got us sorta lost at one point...more like I took the wrong trail but I knew how to get back and we are thinking it's a mile and a half which would have taken us quite some time if we poked along but we made it back to the other spot in 10-15 min. While trotting and cantering non stop...INTENSE! I was in half seat most of the way back. When we began to gallop(it was getting dark and we had to make it out of there before it did) I slowed her down and her whole body vibrated! A bike came out of the middle of no where and spooked my horse but I stayed on! I took off my saddle and there were no dry spots.
So here are some pictures of my husband and I...we both don't like our pictures :P Here is a video too! It's a bit wiggly as it's hard to hold still when riding.
