MrsMom. Pardon the cluttered mounting. I was holding the phone, and the rope, and, well, just being disorganized mounting.
At the end, you'll see that his bridle is on the ground on the rail at the arena. I rode him just about 5 minutes with the bit on, and honestly, the reins were in the way. So I figured if I can talk courage into others, why not get started on Mo's new goal for the year? Dump the bridle, and go on a short trail ride bareback pad & neck rope.
Here's day 1 of our bridleless goal.
