More bareback riding and a relaxed evening at the barn

This evening my mom and I went to the barn to visit my horse. I wanted to ride a little, and since I still don't ride without someone there, I asked my mom to come along.

It was a perfect evening to hang out at the barn. It was beautiful today: sunny, with temperatures in the mid 60s today. We brushed Panama (who has gotten pretty dirty again since his bath), then put his bridle on and took him out back.

I rode bareback, as usual. I attempted trotting for the first time since falling off last weekend — although I did feel pretty unstable once, overall I did better. I guess I just need to get used to the fact that Panama is much narrower than the horse my trainer was giving me bareback lessons on earlier this year.

Several other owners arrived while we were there, but it still felt pretty laid back. We chatted with the newest owners to have moved to the barn, a woman who rescued two rather underfed, neglected horses. That's also when I took the video of Panama requesting a kiss.

I love sunny, relaxed evenings at the barn. I could easily hang out with my horse for hours — and I think he'd rather like that, too!
