Cross Country is by far my favorite thing to do …. And one of Goldrush’s too!!

It can be quite hard travelling full time, I am lucky if I can get onto a cross country course 2 times a year. This month was our lucky month yeehaa! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Here are some recent photos this month of us schooling on a water jump while we had our Youth Retreats on. There will be more added soon

—For those who are are wondering about my lack of back protector….

In this situation it is more dangerous for me to use a protector bareback as it greatly impacts my balance and puts me at risk. I have to make hundreds of small adjustments to stay balanced bareback and need to be as free as possible throughout my whole body to do so.

After much trial and consideration over the years this is the way I choose to ride on purpose for my own safety and my horses.

I understand and know all risks associated with everything I do, I hold full insurance for what I do and I am an adult- thank you for your concern but please do not complain on my page πŸ™‚
When I am in a saddle I use a protector every time.

Enjoy!! πŸ™‚
