    Well... I rode chance at the new barn!

    I rode chance and ermm didnt go to to well but im having someone give me ideas ect and someone is going to ride her for me this weekend!

    I mean I jumped chance over a 12 in vertical small but wanted to be careful so then she cantered and headed stright for the fence that went to the pasture sooo I stoped her in time then swung her around and she threw such a big buck [back hooves almost above her head] I landed on her neck omg [i was soo shooken up because I never really been on her when she bucked that hard] then I asked her to go forward and she started to throw hissy fits and I had to get off I mean at first she was fine like walk trot and going over trot poles then she got pissy soo I can't wait to have someone ride her for me the person said not to get to discouraged cause she's fixable, but gah my confidence in her and myself is droping so after I got off I lunged her a bit and all she did was buck rear twist around and omg horrible. Can't wait to start getting some help ya know?

    The vet checked her over she got her rabies and a physical and she looks fine he said and there doesnt seem to be anything bothering her ect. So im happy aabout that

    If you just moved at your new barn, I would give her a few days off to settle to her the new environment she is in. It's a lot more stressful for horses to move to a new place than what people think. Let her settle and take it easy the first few times you ride her. I'm sure you guys will get better before you know it. :)

    I have to agree with M2G! Give her a bit more time to settle in. ;) It is a new place for her, she needs to adjust a bit more.
    Good luck, I'm sure you guys will be just fine.

    I agree to let Chance settle in more, regardless if she was doing that at the old place. It's a new barn, new smells, new sights. Some horses can adjust in a few days, others a few months. Let her get nice and relaxed in her new home before you start asking much from her. Short (10-15 min) rides of walking would be good until she's settled in.

    Agreed. When I moved WIlly, I gave him a good three weeks to settle in before I asked him to work. This doesn't mean we didn't ride. But, lots of walks with him around the property, meeting new horses, just walking around the arena, etc. We did some bareback rides down to the pond and just chilled. These times are fun for your horse and help them adjust without being asked to work right off the bat.

    Good luck :)

    Is there a trainer at the new barn you are out? It sounds like it's a mix of lack of rider experience and horse who knows he/she can be a pest and get away with it. Taking a few lessons and perhaps starting the horse's training from scratch would be a good idea in order to eliminate any behavior problems or bad habits started by gaps in the what was taught to the animal.

    OKay I know I need some fixes with riding but im not that bad I Know how to ride pretty well walk trot canter jumping around 3ft with a okay position lol. But I know most of her problems is her past I've never delt with a horse with so many problems like chance and everyone tells me just to ride it out of her. Well I get nervous and I can't I usually have to get off and resort to lunging. And she gets mad at the world and bucks and rears and twist around while lungeing. THe girl who saw me ride/work with her hopefully rode chance for me today. The girl already said we are going to put her in the round been and lunge the heck out of her then have me ride her. So maybe ill do that sometime this week.

    Rider getting nervous and getting off is due to inexperience, which isn't bad. Sell the horse and get yourself an animal in it's teens.
