    Halt. I was sitting on my friends older mare and as she took her first step of walk, she stumbled, and as I was bareback, I sailed over her head and landed on my feet. It was wonderfully embarrassing...

    I have two horses and 3 bridles, I think. My TB goes in a Micklem but also has a figure 8 that I refuse to get rid of. My arabian goes in a flash bridle. I do have an excessive number of laced rein...

    I wear my socks over my breeches out of habit. During the summer, I live in flip flops including to and from the barn. Easier to get socks on and off when they are over my breeches.
