Riding wise, I like to ride bareback. I love the moment when you ride a horse bareback for the first time and people are all like, "The horse is going to freak." but the horse doesn't and you feel so...connected. I used to love galloping through the hay field with only a halter and leadrope guiding my horse.
I like to go out in the pasture and run around with Lakota following me. I think its amazing how he reads me so well that I can control his speed, direction, etc with just a slight move of my body or the way I look at him. During the summer I would go out in the pasture and just crouch down while he stood next to me and played with my hair. Or, I'll crawl under his belly without him having a halter on, I'll just do as he's standing free in the pasture. My mother says that'll be the death of me but I do it all the time and he's never moved a muscle. <3
To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.
