This year, I am promising to do two things:
I will ride bareback two hours per week. I have access to an indoor arena, so I’ve got no excuses! One of the first and best things I learned about being in balance on a horse is that riding bareback is the single best way to improve my riding skill.
Furthermore, I will ride with a halter and one rein at least once a week. I won’t ride bareback with a bridle until I’m riding with a fully independent seat.
I will write a blog post or add something to this site at least once a week, on Tuesday or Thursday, and preferably both. There is so much to learn and share. Please help me with your questions, thoughts, and suggestions.
Along with that, I hope you do something with your horse this year that you’ve never done before. Something rewarding!
My New Year’s wish for all of you is that you live a life that you don’t need a vacation from!
