Bareback by SaldaeanFarmgirl Bareback by SaldaeanFarmgirl
Picture taken by my Grandmother, edited by me.

If you have any critique on my riding, please say so kindly, and only say so if you have experience with horses and riding.

Polly the Pocket Pony is back and moving! Yay! She's on her way to full recovery from pulling her check ligaments. (For those of you who don't know, Polly is my 13.2hh, grade buckskin mare.)

Glad to hear Polly's getting better:lol:
Since I don't ride - I wish I did! *jealous* - I can't give you any criticism.

Yay! Thats good that you can't give me any criticism. XD I just hate people who've never ridden a horse in their life who try to tell me I'm doing wrong. If they've ridden, know horses, etc, I'm fine with it. But if they have no experience it makes me mad.

I'm glad she's getting better too, thanks for the comment!

Yay for Polly! I'm glad to hear that she's doing a lot better. I'm sure she'll heal up all good. :)

I'm kind of jealous... I haven't ridden a horse since I was young. So fun and so free. I miss it.

It is so much fun! Its funny riding her bareback because she likes to swing her hips when she walks, so you sway from side to side. XD Go to a place near where you live, I'm sure they'll give rides.

Thanks!

Yeah, I'm sure they have rides here and what not... But I'm afraid I may be too fat to ride a horse. lol Just being honest! :P

Nope, your not! There are overweight people in my saddle club who get 17 seconds barrel racing. Your never to fat to ride, though it probably is easier to ride when your in shape.

I saw a sign on a farm once that read something like this: We have big horses for big people, short horses for short people, experienced horses for experienced riders, and never been ridden horses for people who've never ridden.

XD Its a joke but its true. I'm sure there are horses that would be perfect for you.

Interesting, I didn't know. Thanks, it makes me feel a lil better. :rofl:

I hadn't realized that there were really that many. I think I need to educate myself more in all this. I know nothing about horses. :)

Yes you should. ;) I encourage it. I would have someone to talk to then... about horse stuff. XD

Aww... really? You don't know too many people that know horse stuff?

I know my mother in law just absolutely loves horses... and I've been trying to do a cross stitched design for her to frame, but I am so tired of doing cross stitching. lol

OH!!! I wanted to share this with you... [link] SUPER CUTE video of Dorito!

Nope. Morgan, a junior who lives at the place I board. She's it. XD

Lol I never tried cross stiching. Seems boring.

Aww how cute!
