We were riding outside today and my instructor told me to do posting trot.. no problem right? wrong.
He starts out fast and it only gets worse because she said i was leaning too far forward, he thought i was telling him to canter. so he takes off, and hes just running blind, wont stop, and i cant get him under control, im losing my seat and i cant pull on the reins because he runs from the pressure. and im trying to stop him, but im too scared. i was afraid he wasnt going to stop. i was terrified. this has happened before but we were inside.
i guess i know what i did wrong but i dont know how to prevent it
and i dont know how to stop the horse if he takes off again.
im still really scared.
may they all have good fortune, good food, and an abundance of love.
