I may not be into Football or many sports, but I do like watching horse shows. I have competed in horse shows, but in all honesty, I do not fully enjoy competing. Typically, when I compete, I do Western Pleasure. I have done other types like horsemanship, and trail. I have only placed first once or twice. It is honestly fun to watch the horses and riders compete and watch how the riders ask the horses to do different challenges. It is a great learning experience. I personally prefer training horses. I love watching a horse who has never experienced a saddle or being ridden go from being green to being able to go around an arena and trail ride. Two of my favorite horses I have worked with are Royal and William. Both of them are interesting. Royal is smart, but at the same time tries to push the limits of what she is allowed to do. I have fallen off with her, she's bolted with me, and humped up before, its the stage before bucking. William is also smart, but he is ornery. While I enjoy riding him, it takes a lot of effort to keep him under control sometimes. I have many stories about working with two-year old green horses I can share later on as well as a few sailing races.

I like riding motorcycles, the old steel horse.  The freedom experienced and the wind blowing through my thinning hair is priceless.

 

JD Anderson has been wanting me to take him for a ride.

Horses are amazing animals. I could go to something like this and just relax, smoke a cigar and have something smooth to drink.

One day when society fails horses will be returned to the position of honor they held for centuries.

Thanks. I haven't worked with Regattas or sailboats in forever. I have only done two regattas, and they were 4 years ago now.

You are right. Being able to train and take care of horses will be a skill that is always needed.

When I get the chance, I am going to get a motorcycle and my licenses so I can ride one.

Yeah, do share! For me, this is a real pleasure to read. As a kid, I once rode a young and nervous race breed into the field. When we reached full galloping speed, I noticed her wanting to go ballistic, so I made us go ride a curve to (slow us down and) catch her. She would not appreciate and go from humping to buckling (and -from the perspective of the others and myself- into full blown rodeo) in pretty much one instance.

 

I had both arms in gypsum, afterwards. 🤣

Thankfully, I have not had an experience like that, but I've worked with mostly two year olds who are green. Its quite fun to be able to say, your the first person to ever ride that horse and it is scary. I've had horses buck and some who bolt. Typically, I'm attached to a lunge rope with someone on the ground to keep the horse in check until the horse becomes accustomed to being ridden. Once we achieve that, we can then begin teaching it how the reins work and proceeding from there.

Was "talked" into entering two rodeo's over 25 years ago and had a blast.  Thanks for the memories and I'll save the cow milking stories for a later post ... Maybe .... Not! 😏

Great video clips Old Buck.  I have told folks that there is no way I would ride a bike with a DOT certified helmet when my DOD certified Army Combat Helmet works just fine.  The Highway Patrol have a bias on this issue of course. 🤨

Do not retrace, lol

Mind you: her name was Ballerina, she was a gift to her keeper, I guess, because her prior training had not been a success, but had left her in her nervousness (which was akin to her name).

I want to tell you something, Umbra:

She was in anticipation of me taking revenge on her ever after that incident described above. For years to come. There were merely little moments, when she could be easy around me, before she “remembered/recognized”, who I was, and got cautious, again.

This I found to be very remarkable, back then, and I wondered why she couldn’t let bygones be bygones.

I for my part had no plans on any revenge, whatsoever. I had known her temper before climbing (I was small at the time) into the saddle!

I believe, she has gotten used to people treating her (viciously/revengeful) like that - and effectively has been twisted for life during training.

Indeed T.E.G.  Having the skills and knowledge to work with all domesticated large animals found in the U.S. is essential to ones safety.  There are plenty of sites with test and video descriptions of how horses, cattles, goats, etc behave and just having this base information can keep your lower extremities from being hurt. 

While my family had horses while I was growing up, I never appreciated them enough to become a serious rider.  They are great transportation however when one is faced with no technology (gas and transportation).  One has to have the knowledge to support them and keep them functional, if not, then they are just another potential future meal.

Even with a limited amount of knowledge, horses can be easy to keep healthy.

Check Umbra. An transportation will be the key once the final balloon goes up.
