Frosty gets his first horse ride

We got a heavy snowfall two days ago, so we went out and saddled up the horses while it was still snowing. Frosty didn't appreciate walking in the snow, so I picked him up and carried him while I rode my horse.

Surprisingly enough, he seemed to enjoy it, if only because it got his paws out of the snow.

Oh Frosty, there is NOTHING better than riding a horse in the snow. It was my favorite thing to do when I was a teenager.

Re: Frosty gets his first horse ride

Braver than me to ride in the snow! I think it could be nice if I were dressed properly, like you are.
Frosty does look quite pleased with himself!

What kind of saddle are you using, I LOVE that it has no horn. The only horse who ever bucked me off
had me unseated and laying on her neck with my head between her ears and every jumping buck
punching the horn of the saddle into my pelvis bone. I eventually came off over her head and landed
on my lower back. I split the seat of my jeans WIDE OPEN. That is why our Mothers tell us to
"wear clean underwear".
I also like long latigo reins and I loop them. I greatly disliked when I'd pull back for a cue and the loop in the reins
would get caught in the horn.

I currently have an Aussie Kimberly saddle (no horn) and a Wintec dressage saddle. I would like a Tucker Endurance
type saddle for comfort during long rides.

That looks like fun! I'm a little surprised he didn't freak out! Is he around the horses often?

That's a western endurance saddle--not sure about the brand.
I actually prefer horned saddles. They're quite useful to me.

Sort of. He spends a lot of time around the horses, but he doesn't like to get too close to them. He's not scared of them, he's just cautious.
The horses were actually the only thing that convinced Frosty to spend more time outside, so I guess he kind of appreciates them.
