trotting is a more bouncier ride but if you were loping it would have been smooth and fun! Horseback riding is great if you get a good horse.

If you know how to ride it is not bad at all. Than again I always used a western saddle and knew how to ride, lmao.

Now one time we were visiting someone at a stable and she said " why don't you take my horse for a ride" I had been riding for a while and seen no problem in it besides the fact that it was bareback. So I figured I would bring him for a walk down this field and back. Well he was pretty attached to his owner and decided as we reach then end that he wanted to go back and FAST. He took off full tilt. I was still fairly young then ( probably 12 or so). Plus he was only wearing a halter. SO people that have ridden know what I am talking about. With just a halter there was little control, lol. Well lets just say that was a pretty interesting ride with nothing to hold on to going pretty damn fast. One thing is that I stayed on the whole trip back even going through the fences to get back ( kinda like * corners). I guess I was still freaked out a bit but on the other hand was amazed that I stayed on, hehe.

Now THAT was an experience.

My horses used to routinely try to kill me. I think I spent the entirety of fourth grade with a huge scrape on one of my hips because of repeated riding accidents. I sprained both of my wrists being bucked off...messed up one of my shoulders. And that'* just a partial list but for some reason I still loved it

my mistake, we only got up to a slow "trotting" never did a gallop thankfully! My knees are really sore today from riding that thing. I was trying to hold myself up off of the saddle as much as possible. When he started trotting though it was all over. I couldn't stay up. lol.

That'* actually how you're supposed to ride (at least that'* what I was told). Sounds like you had the right idea!
