Things have been pretty uneventful over hear. Last week was pretty busy for me and while I did ride nothing too eventful happened until Kyle came out to the barn with me on Friday. That is where the fun began! As you can see below Kyle picked up where he left off over 1.5 years ago and went for a ride with me! Houston’s status as a husband horse is more established by the day.
Given that I only have one saddle there seemed to be no time like the present to see how Annie would handle being ridden bareback. As I should have known she was a champ.
We kept the ride pretty simple by hacking around the perimeter of the property. It is about a mile track and the horses we content to amble around.
Kyle got practice stopping and steering so overall it was a win. I loved getting to unwind from the week together doing my favorite thing.Once we were closer to the arena I decided it would be fun to try to trot and canter Annie. When that went well I threw caution to the wind and decided to jump her over a small vertical. I haven’t jumped bareback in years and it was so fun! I need to ride bareback more often though because I am not in good enough shape!
Do any of you guys bring your SO’s out to the barn? Have they ridden? Do they want to learn how to ride?
