Back in the saddle again

Back in the saddle again
Originally uploaded by spottyhorse67

Proverbial saddle in this case as I'm actually riding bareback, but am up nonetheless and happier for it.

I rode a little longer than I normally do when riding bareback and Bar started to get grumpy. Initially, I attributed it to his short attention span and the sound of the grain cart, but after I got off and rubbed his back--where my rear end had previously rested--I decided it may have been something else.

Bar says I need more padding, or a saddle, please.

Saddle is next. Maybe even a bridle!

Pretty exciting!! Glad you are riding, saddle or no. Can you safely throw a saddle with that hand?

Jessica Boyd said...

Yeah, baby--as long as it's the English or the Abetta (synthetic and light)--I think I can do it!

Well......are you riding bareback with no reins? Since you said bridle next? You really know how to give me a heart attack.

But I'm sure Bar is pleased.

Love, Momlasco

And Happy 4th to you, Steve, Katie, and the critters!

Glad to hear it. Just take care of that arm. Don't need another setback.
