Mara and I had fun arena activity this afternoon. She had lunge line time and then I put her bridle on right over her halter for some overdue ride time. Mara is chubby and hairy and so I rode bareback! Just walking circles, but having her back in her bridle and for me to have a little ride was pleasant. Bareback riding has not been my mode in decades, but it was warm and good for me to try again.
