Rode an Arab for the First Time
So against the nature of the common Paint horse owner, I've always really admired Arabians (well I pretty much admire every breed, but still). Today I got to ride a grey Arab mare for the first time at the local rescue ranch! She's at the rescue for a reason, so she's lost a lot of her training (the rescue knew her when she was young too, and she was a good riding horse at one point). However, I was determined to ride her! My friend has more confidence and rode before me and then I got on. She obviously needs some work, but I LOVED her. I didn't lope much because I was working on calming her down, but when I did I loved it. And her jog was great. She's probably the only horse I've ridden that actually wanted to go go go! Needless to say I was very excited. I am now determined that my next horse is an Arab mare... I have no clue when that will be!
