Our Last Ride.

Hey,

There is a line. The line is when the horse is turned over from its trainer to its rider.

Pumpkin and I had our last "regurlar" ride together the other day and he has just started riding with his owner. Hopefully I will not have to start riding him again. He is doing great with his owner and is "the perfect pony". Even if I say it myself I am very impressed with his training. He leads properly, will take the bit, walk, trot, canter and will jump over a meter and still be able to be stopped. He doesn't bite as much and since I have started riding him daily over the holidays he has quietened down a heap!

So after exactly 3 months and 9 days of training, his additude has changed amazingly. So here are some photos from our last ride. Not many because the camara died before the real fun came.

Please no "bad" commenting or critique.

~~~~~

Pumpkinzmybaby has been riding her pony for 4 days now and I will let her tell everyone in her own words what she thinks and also tell everyone about her great fall!

well yes, I have been riding Pumpkin alot more lately. It has been gr8 fun tyo get back in the saddle on my own pony!! Pumpkin has certainly settled down alot since being ridden and is doing really well.

We have been jumping quite a bit, as it is his favourite activity and is going really well. About the fall... we were approaching a stright bar ( two milk crates high) at a foward canter and he though it would be fun to see someone come off his back for the last time for a long time. Anyway, we came up to the jump, everything fine and he swerved to the right, and came to a complete halt just at the jump. I came off side ways, and ended up sitting normally on the crates. Then they toppeled over and I landed on my back. Staring at the sky I stated "Ouch!". Of course, I got up and mounted Pumpkin again while I was laughing my head off. ChingazMyBoy joined in with the laughuing.

What the worst part of the fall was it happened just as a man with his kid came over the road to say hello to Pumpkin. The time to shine came to a bad end... We tryed again and cleared it really well so it wasn't that bad after all.

Thanks to ChingazMtBoy for all the time and hard work you put into to my pony. And hopefully, like you said, you won't have to ride him again to tell him to settle down.

Awh, it's always sad to ride a horse for the last time, but at least you've done him some good!
And if you're friends with the owner, you may still be able to get to ride him sometimes!

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.

Thanks. Pumpkinzmybaby22. What you wrote made me smile, I hopefully will get on him again soon *hint* *hint*. Although we are hoping to start riding together, so that will be great fun. The fall was clasic. Same thing happened to me today. This lady and her daughter walked up I stood on Chinga, and he has never walked away but today seemed like a great day to and I went one way and landed half on him. I went to sit down but it went pare shapped!

yes, you will be able to ride him again as you like riding him and you helped me through a rough patch today (Sugars moving on). That show off moment went wrong for both of us!! That was a funny time. Horses chose the right time to stuff things up!

Awww...it's always fun to ride and work with different horses, but it's also great to see them go home and do well with their owners afterwards too!

I fit right in on the whole 'embarassing' moments things, only I've been fortunate to not usually fall off. This spring, after Pride passed away, I went home to my family for the weekend and rode my old show partner, who is at 22, still a 'full of fire' Arab. Well, we did fine as we normally do, but at the end of our arena time, when a couple of us decided to do some 'speed dashes' down the arena and back, that old guy decides he's going to buck every time I go to do the rollback...I was riding bareback, with only a bareback pad...so it was all I could do to stay on...my mom and best horse friend, were laughing so hard they were practially falling off their own horses!

im sorry about your horse passing away. It's always sad to lose a friend, even if not a human
