    BB is my enemy lol I love riding but I prefer a nice leather saddle molded to fit me jus right haha. I could never get my legs set right as a kid BB so I gave up an now at 24 I haven't tried again. I wish I still had access to one again! He looks great, how long have you been riding?

    Hahaha I guess it depends on what you're doing. I've gotten really used to him bareback so now unless I want to trot around for a long time or canter (he's like a mini-warmblood with his gates - long, bouncy stride) that's just what I do. I haven't been riding long, I only started taking lessons early this spring but I'm not planning on stopping anytime soon!

    Joy riding and random northern mn farm work. Road on an off growing up. I have a knack for picking the stubborn hard headed horse lol, had my cousins big black %50 Arabian %50 some tall stalky beast I think a moose spend 20 mins trying to throw me off him randomly because he's a jerk and didn't want to be rode unless you proved you wanted too lol. And don't ever stop! Lol I'm a small town country person trapped in a city, can't ride a horse with a rifle on your back yelling at cows throughout the city.. some goofy laws I guess haha

    Hahaha I seemed to be like that too - the horse that I rode before this guy would try to stomp you if you put him on cross ties, would run you into the stall wall if he was stalled, tried to buck me off on a trail... The whole shabang. I'm lucky I have a good understanding with this horse, he's an ex gymkhana horse so he's a little too fiery for a lot of people.

    I feel you! I can't wait to be done with school so I can move out of the city.

    I have no idea about horses but that is a fine looking horse. Did no saddle hurt?

    He's very comfortable without a saddle because his back isn't very boney. But for instance the other horse I used to ride had very high whither a and was a little less comfortable. It depends on the horse!
