A Bareback Rider I Am Not

I wanted to give PJ an easy day but a hack was out because it was just too cold and windy and I had no one to go out with.  Instead I hopped on him bareback (with a helmet of course).  It was a rude awakening to how far I have yet to go in my riding.

The walk stuff was okay but I could feel how stiff my hips were.  Then I asked PJ to trot. I grabbed mane and still had problems keeping my balance.  Maybe I just stiffened up because I was afraid I would loose my balance, but regardless I think I need to do this more to help my regular riding.  I never had the benefit of galloping through the fields on my pony as a kid because I never had a pony as a kid.  I know I missed out but I vow to make up for lost time.
