Well, I did something today that I haven't done since the 70's. I rode my boy bareback, in shorts & no shoes. I know it's not the smartest thing i've ever done, but it sure was fun! I guess I just wanted to make sure I could still do it. Back in my younger days that's the only way I rode, injun style! I use to be able to run up behind my Appy mare & jump up on her from behind. I also could run barrels on her bareback! Now, I feel like if my boy just turned sharp I would eat dirt! I wonder if I rode bareback more often if I would get my balance back?
Ya I jus rode this horse bareback this weekend for the first time in years and I was so sore I could hardly walk but I know how to stay on when loping I just hold my knees in tighter to keep balance now I never said I knew how to stay on while trotting. Which I don't at all.. But best way to learn balance again is to hold on with your legs and put your strenghth in your upper body Posted via Mobile Device
