Soooooooooo as you all know, being able to go horseback riding was on my list of weight loss goals!!! I had researched it online and the weight limit was 250 at most places, SOOOOOOO, with hitting 249 this past week, I knew that it was time to experience this new goal ANNNNNND Thursday was my chosen day to go, since most places are taking their horses to cooler weather for the summer!! There was NO WAY I was waiting till the end of October to go!!!
Don't worry, found a RIDING skirt on amazon for NEXT TIME!!! Because I will be doing this again, definitely a new hobby I'm going to learn!!! I chose to go to Cave Creek Trail Rides for my first time riding, it was recommended to me by the lady waxing my eyebrows, LOL, annnnnd since I grew up in this town I was liiiiiiike SUUUUURE!!!
Celebrating 110 pounds lost!!!
Soooooooooooooo to be honest, I was scared OUT OF MY MIND when I was ACTUALLY on top...Like...OMW...THIS IS A ANIMAL...IT HAS IT A MIND OF ITS OWN...ANNNNND THIS IS REALLY HIGH OFF THE GROUND...EEEEEEKS!!! Buuut after a while, I relaxed, they said I was riding like pro, apparently I had really good riding posture...NOT QUITE as at getting OFF THE HORSE!!! BAHAHAHA!!!
Sooooooooooooo yeah, basically we went all through the desert...That was the thing that scared me, cuz there were cactus and stuff, I was like, I don't want my horse to get to close to the cactus and get mad and buck me off, also they said it was rattlesnake season...soooo YOU NEVER KNOW!!! Next time, I'm going to take the trail UP THE MOUNTAIN...it's like a 2 hour ride!! OOOOOH ANNNNNNND...we're going to go in a group, it's going to be a BLAST!!!.
My horses name was Teddy Bear!!! Is that liiiiiiike the most MAR-BEARISH name everrrrrr???
The lady riding in front of me was asking if it was fly season because there were so many flies around the horses, I'm like, THEY'RE HORSES LADY...HORSES...Pooping and peeing like every 10 minutes, whada ya expect to be around them???Of course I HAD TO TAKE A SELFIE at some point...I mean, I may have been scared out of my mind...buuuuuuuuuuut...How could I NOT take a selfie???
Next riding session will be this summer...In the bay...AT THE BEACH...How amaaaazing is that??? IF I can find a place, apparently, most places over there are saying 200 pounds is their limit, and I don't quite think I'll be there by August!!! LOL!!! If anyone knows of any good places let me know!!!!
