Lol when you're bareback two-point is easy! All you have to do is lean forward because you can't really stand in your stirrups at all if you don't have any...I ride bareback most of the time when I don't have a lesson and sometimes in a lesson (It was really cold on Saturday, hence my reason to ride bareback in a lesson) so I get a lot of practice.

Jumping bareback is so much fun! :D Takes some practice though.
Oh, I see lol. I could call Louie mine I guess...even my instructor says he's basically my horse
Of course, I get reminders that he's not mine when someone else rides him (a rare-ish event though) but no one rides him as well as me anyway.
Lol completely random but she said that for the next show I go to with him (at least 4 months XD) I can make his showname Sir Crazyhorse instead of King Louis...because really, at the show I just went to he RAN AWAY when I was hand walking him around the barn...went right over the hill and I was like, oh my god Louis. He's never going to stop! Luckily there was a fence and nice green grass. And he dragged me around the stadium and cross country courses, even after that and he was lame too (just a little bit-obviously not enough to bother him
Rant: Alexander's sick. It might be columnaris :( ...gah.
