No pun intended in the title, but what the heck.

ok, i'll start, getting a little punchy here,
the first and last time i went horseback riding, on the beach, with my ex-husband (must have been an omen)the horse became so confused with me trying to direct it, pulling on his reins, that he threw me off, sat on me, got up and ran back to the stables.
However, I do not liken this to my relationships, like the fish thread...

Nothing THAT interesting for me. Just the 'ole saddled horse following the same 'ole trail and I had to pay for the unexciting adventure. Heck, some to think of it , just like my marriage.

For my dream, I am riding bareback on a fine muscled grey speckled horse and the man of my dreams sits with a cowboy hat, cotton gauze beige shirt, unbutoned, of course, tucked into his snug jeans with tan leather belt, as he rides his dark chestnut brown horse, at least one hands taller than mine. It is along the beach at water's edge, just before sunset....So now what happens?

why do people always ride bareback in their dreams?

Have you ever ridden bareback on a horse? I have. I did not like it. I see now why they invented saddles.

I like horses. I rode on one at a camp, I was so scared that for the entire ride throught the woods I sang "Jesus Loves Me"

He was a nice horse though. =)

Other than that, I rode on a pony at the county fair once.

When I was a very little kid, the only thing I ever asked for was a horse. Every birthday. Every Christmas. I was obsessed with watching Westerns on TV because of the horses. I finally gave up when I got to be about 10.

When I was 12, my dad and his best friend were going to ride horseback into the wilderness along the river to camp a few nights and fish. I was begging to go but my dad told me no. He said that he was going to take my brother, but my brother kept insisting that he didn't want to go. Finally my dad relented and agreed to take me with him.

We went to pick up horses that they were borrowing from a friend. My dad was asking me which one I wanted and I saw this beautiful Chestnut colored gelding with a blue-black mane and tail. He had a white stripe on his nose that started out small on his forehead and got bigger all the way down. He was standing on a little hill with his head up, looking at us like "I don't think any of you fucks will be riding me today or any other day." I pointed him out and said "That one." My dad tried, meagerly, to disuade me because this horse named Cherokee was hard to catch, but once you caught him, and rode him he took care of you.

My dad caught him and suffice it to say I had the time of my life. I slept on the ground and didn't even freak when a spider got in the sleeping bag with me. I fished and did better than my dad or his friend. Those trips were the only time that my dad treated me like an equal but I earned it by paying attention to saddling, bridling, and taking care of myself. I wanted to be able to do this again, you see.

I was able to do it again, for a long time because when I turned 15, Cherokee's owner put him up for sale and my dad bought him and another Dunn gelding. After that, I went riding every day in an area game preserve located less than a mile from where my dad's friend kept our horses. I learned to ride bare-back. It took work that I didn't expect. I can damn well say that if I were still doing that, I would have buns, thighs, and abs made of steel!

Just before I left for college, Cherokee went lame. My dad would feed a horse that was no good for riding so off to the dog food factory he went, but not before I fed him some apples and had a good cry.

That horse could walk any trail and never run his rider into anything. He always knew where to cross under a branch so that I didn't have to duck down. I never had to move a leg out of the way of cactus, mesquite, or stray branches. He could cross the river, muddy or clear without a slip. If we saw a rattle snake on the trail, he would pull over like a driver waiting for an ambulance to pass. Once, we went through a hornets' nest and all the other horses and pack mules flipped out. Cherokee just trotted off flicking his tail like there was nothing in the world to be concerned about.

I swear that horse was and probably still is my guardian angel.

Love to all,

Ren'ai

personally i love burros and donkeys, but friendly and sweet horses i adore too. as a kid my sister took me horseback riding with a bunch of her friends. they were all in high school and i was just a little kid and they all took off and i was left alone on my horse that refused to go when i told it to and i was left crying and kicking the shit outta that horse and feeling guilty for doing so for a looooong time, until finally the horse took off running and eventually i guess someone must've found me, but i don't remember.
another time my adoptive sister took me horseback riding and it was one of the funnest times i can remember. until the horse saw a snake and was terrified and acting real weird but didn't throw me off. or until my sister decided to get both the horses to take off "trotting" and i was yelling-"hey! hey! not funny make hime stop! c'mon! make hime stop make him stop!" and she'd just laugh and laugh and laugh. geesh.
the third horse story that i can think of is this one time this kid who i had befriended that was about 5 years younger than me-15-20 at the time, her mom was really shitty and abusive to her and smoked a lot of crack and drank a lot and stuff and so she'd hang out with me, i was her neighbor. anyhow, our landlord had a horse that it was the young girls' job to take care of and so she decided that she'd trade me horse lessons, i think for driving lessons. anyhow, it was amazing, yeah, learning to ride bareback, great! uncomfortable, but pretty amazing. i've always hated kicking horses. it feels so cruel. and i've always hated the stories people tell about getting kicked by horses. ouch! i'd love to learn to ride horses for reals...

When I was a 7 year old kid, there was an orphanage in Florida that supported itself partly by operating as a "ranch" where you could rent horses for a day, and ride, or do other "western" flavored activities--hayrides, camp out at ghost towns, and so on.

My family used to do campouts, and the high point of those was the "Midnight ride" down a straight path called the grade--since it was striahgt and well packed you could fairly safely ride at high speed even at midnight. The Midnight ride was a race, by the way.

So I was excited about my prospects of winning that night because I was riding "Spot" a black shetland pony who happned to be the horse with the fastest acceleration. There was only one stallion, named Midnight that really had a chance against spot in a middle distance race. The thing is, we didn't have saddles for the Shetlands....

So Ready, set Go! Bang! Spot tears off with terrific acceleration, like a motorcycle with four legs, quickly outdistancing the other fourteen horses. I was so excited that me and this dinky little pony were I was going to best these experienced adult riders, and most especially the guy who was riding the previously unbeaten Midnight. That guy was my big sister's boyfriend and I just didn't like him.

I'm pulling farther and farther ahead, screaming into the pitch black, and this pony just seems to be going faster and faster. But you know what, my legs were too short to really have a good grip on Spot's back, and with no saddle or stirrups, I found myself being vibrated and shaken and sliding off of him to the side. I found myself hanging upside down, holding onto the pony's neck, the pony still just tearing down the grade. Next thing I knew, bam, I hit the ground, and rolled over onto my stomach just in time....

to be trampled by all the other horses and riders who had been behind me. There I was face down on a dirt road at midnight with horse after horse running over me--buddubump buddabump buddabump.

Amazingly, nothing was broken and I was fine the next day.

Still, though. Next time, I want a saddle.

The best ride I ever had was a 198? Duster, metallic blue, low rider. Those horses under the hood would run. Learned how to drive like a racer that year. Learned how to work on cars. Learned how to get into a whole lot of trouble. Thanks cousin. When he went to sell it my dad said NO, cost him to many city fines already.

Never been on a real horse that didn't run off w/ me, so I keep my horses corraled under the hood. lol
