I love horses and I own four. I have told you the story of how they came here and have shared many pictures of them. You have only seen me riding once. Prepare yourself and think...Roseanne Barr and a shetland pony. Now you have the right picture.
Magic came home today from the trainer. Sam insisted I ride, gosh me??? Yes, you. But, but, but, anyway I rode because she is a trainer. I love them from the ground but I am ignorant on their back.
Now this is a freshly trained horse and is not sure what I am asking and I am not sure how to ask. All you horse pros, I hear you laughing.
Sam helps Magic and Sam helps me. The stirrups are too long and guess what I have on my feet? Flip flops!
Are we getting the hang of it? Notice the one-handed rein technique and the one handed death grip on the saddle horn. If I were talented enough, I could toss that belly over the saddle horn and ride with no hands.
I didn't tell you the stirrups were set long for my husband to ride but he did not ride.
Look, guys, I can ride in another direction and the hand's off the saddle horn.
Now for the perfect dismount, flip flops still in place.
I hope you do realize what a break through this was for me, not ony riding but showing my picture.
