“This is an almost 8 year old picture of me and my German Riding Pony “Lucky” He was such a wonderful horse. You could always ride him bareback without beeing afraid. Such a good horse, sad I lost him.
Riding bareback often as a child helped me develop a better seat and improved my balance. I encourage beginners and young riders to ride bareback every once in a while, as it really helps to feel the horses movements.”
Best Regards from Germany,
Thank you for sharing Nina! 🙂
