I have not ridden Honey bareback yet. But after being inspired by Tuffybird I thought what am I waiting for! Because it has been a long time, before this year that I have ridden, I know that I have to work on getting my "seat" back. What better way than bareback!!!!
So I got out my Parelli bareback pad. I love that pad!!! The reason? It is suede and your butt sits on it like glue. Just AWESOME!!! Doesn't Honey look so pretty with it on? I think she does, of course I am a bit biased. LOL
Wow! The first 5 mins. of riding was so strange. I was wondering how I ever did it before! Was my balance ever off!!! But then it got a lot better. I am sure that I will feel it in my legs tomorrow. Good excuse to ride again. But anyways, I had to take a picture to prove that I was up there.
I really think that if I ride like this more often, I will become a lot better rider for my sweet girl. By the way, this is the first time that she has had anybody on her with just a bareback pad on. So I think that she did awesome. The funny thing is that we have these big tractor tires in the arena that we feed the horses in when they are in there. I had to get a little step stool to climb onto the tire, to climb on her. She kept going over by the tire that I used to get on her, and she would stop, like are we done yet?
So I had a lot of fun doing this and I just had to share. Hoping that someday that I will be the best horsewoman that I can be for a horse that deserves to have me be at my best. Here is another pic. of the view up there.
