Alright, so my last post was maybe a bit dramatic and contained some blood, but as always in life, after rain comes sunshine.😊
In December 2015, when we had finished the Sarcoid treatment and I was certain again, that Barley was fit for fight, I couldn’t wait to get back on his back again.
I had decided to test some bareback riding in the indoor arena to be able to feel if he is tense or if he relaxes, then a friend gave me a dare
I’m on the way to the barn, meet me half way and ride him bareback on the green
Ok, to be truthful, I didn’t think it was a good idea. Most others wouldn’t dare to ride their horses after only one week of rest….with a saddle…in the indoor arena, but ok. I thought that he would be so fresh that he would buck me off. Afterwards I could have slapped myself for thinking this way.
I should know better!!!
First: I should have known Barley better as to compare him with other horses and should’ve trusted him more!
Second: Just because others say you can’t do it, it doesn’t mean you can’t do it.
Third: I should have known Barley better as to compare him with other horses and should’ve trusted him more.
Fourth: He is the best! ❤
So we walked down to the green. I wanted to be sure that he is cool…and he was 😍!
Voilà! Barley and I after an almost 3 months break. First ride ❣
