My very-nearly 4 year-old cob has gotten wider again so her saddle has gone off to be adjusted. This was 3 weeks ago and I'm still waiting, so have started riding bareback. When I came back to riding (about 2 weeks before I bought her!) I had no confidence and the thought of jumping a tiny x-pole made me want to cry.

This little cob has done absolute wonders for me. She's such a kind, honest horse who people always struggle to believe isn't quite 4. So yesterday, I thought we try some bareback jumping.

I know it doesn't look like much, but it's been a huge confidence boost for me :D.

And as for the how's she looking, what does everyone think? I'm being quite careful with her weight as the Spring grass is coming through. She needs more topline which is a work in progress as it'll only get there through correct work.

:eek: Thank you everyone for the lovely comments :).

She's 'my' first horse - I've had shares and loans when I was a tennager living at home, but it's the first time I've sole responsibility for everything; and I worry endlessly about her. That isn't helped by people telling me I'm 'cruel' for weighing her hay and double-netting so it lasts longer, and not giving her hard feed 2x a day, but I just want to do the right thing for her.

Your doing great a horses weight should be the same all year round which is often hard to do. I love to see fit horses.
