Sweet, sounds like you'll be prepared then! My leather over and under was the best swatter I ever bought, makes a lot of noise but barely even stings when it makes contact.

I have to warn you though, I wouldn't use it too much unless you're running home!

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

I might not have to use it and if I do it will be running home.

well too be honest it was a bit harsh. I was expecting more positive things. You can say things in a more polite way. In a way I wish I didn't post it as someone always has something negative to say about me and my horse..besides the one where gidget is nickering over her food. People can say what I am doing wrong without drilling me for every single thing. It makes me feel that I shouldn't have my horse. It makes me think people think I am horrible at riding...I think people should consider people's feelnigs a little bit. I know what I did wrong and I do have someone helping me with gaming. She takes lessons and I asked if she could help me since I honestly can't afford any untill I pay off some more bills.

Don't worry about it, have I told you about my trainer?

If I turned a barrel wrong, I'm looking at the biggest earful of my life.

If I knocked over a jump, I'm looking at a good smack from the crop.

Have you seen those military drill sergeants? Yup, that's my trainer!

Most people are a lot nicer than her...I don't even know how she can do the things she does and not feel bad, I feel awkward if I even raise my voice!

Don't worry girly, you deserve to have your horse, you're just in that period of time where you're learning LOTS and of course some people are going to knock you down, but its up to you whether you're going to get discouraged or fight to prove them wrong! I know you got it in you chica.
Klassic Superstar and Gidget like this.

:) Thanks.

I am new..I've only owned my first horse(Gidget is technically my 3rd but the other too didn't last long at all so I consider her my first) for not even two yrs yet. I didn't know how to ride 2 yrs ago so I've improved majorly.

My main concern is if Gidget is in pain or not. I have checked her multiple times. She hasn't shown any signs so I do not see why she was swishing her tail?

I've been taught by a vet. On how to inspect for pain

Maybe she could benefit from a Chiropractor visit....Rebel was never in any large amounts of pain, but after I got him adjusted he was so much more flexible and supple that it was just amazing.

My guess, based on how my two horses behave, is that the tail swishing was due to frustration, not pain.

Well, the one I used with Rebel is no longer with us.....

There is someone new coming to my trainers place this week. I'll see how the horses respond to him, and then we'll see. I'll also ask around, I've never used anyone except the first guy, so I'm not too knowledgeable on what's around anymore.
