Today I’ve be riding bare back, it is my idea of practising on my seat/balance, Anyway on to the practise, as normal I started with a walk, obviously there were no problems with the walk. I am not an exceptional rider, but I think even I would have difficulty falling off at the walk.
Then we had a trot which was quite bumpy to start with, but I soon got my balance back, and then all the trotting went pretty good.
And then I just had to try cantering, not such a good idea or such a good experience. It is hard to end on a good note when, well let’s just say my riding was less then dignified, this photograph is sadly one of the better moments, where I can pretend that I am in control, but it really is just pretending.
And I had a goat watch me all the time, with very accusing eyes. Well at least I have learnt another lesson, make sure that Niko is wearing a neck strap for me to grab instead of his poor mane when I almost fall off.
Thank you all for your comments on my last post.
