From Bareback, to Bareback Pad









I am getting used to taking an evening ride on Daisy bareback down the driveway. I've been looking at a bareback pad on Stateline Tack and I really liked it, and since we have money on Paypal right now from selling my American Girl Doll stuff on ebay, we bought it! Blue flame. I have seen it in the magazines before I even had Daisy and I have admired them. I really like it. It came on Friday in the mail. Daisy doesn't seem to mind it either. It's really soft. So that's how I went from bareback to bareback pad. We have been going on short rides almost four times a day! I just couldn't help myself. It's at the point where if I turn her to go in the woods she doesn't want to go and we have an argument. Luckily, I always win. I don't want her to think she is the "boss". In the fifth picture down from the top you can see me mounting with my "mounting block", a.k.a., a tree stump. But it works just as well and is a lot $cheaper$ (hehehehe), so..... Daisy gave pony rides to 5 kids Friday night. The family had come for dinner, and so they "rode" with me leading them. I am very happy to say that Daisy was great, she just went along and behaved even better then she does with me. With this I mean that she stood at the mounting block for longer periods without moving, which, if I get on, doesn't happen. All is well. I am very happy, and I think Daisy likes it here by now, too.

It is really cool! Luckly she has a broad back, it's no fun if a horse has a boney spine!

If you have a bareback pad wouldn't it not be barebake riding anymore.

Mellimouse said...

I know, bareback pads are a way to cheat, kind-of, but they are really comfortable, so....

Yes, Daisy does really well with everything I do with her.
