I rode bareback once in a tiny community out around the bay. She was anice mare
Other than that I have not ridden. I don't like the bits for their mouth :/ And the man's tragically allergic to horses. His mom rides all the time (they live in separate areas of Halifax
so it dont bother him) and I might get hooked up over winter while I;m there. Go spend a day with her, I hope!! HOrses are wonderful!
