Tommorow, I am going to try out a trail horse.
He has been ridden 1 or 2 per year since these people own him, as they have young horses to train.
His old owners rode him in mountains, trails, packing trips etc.
I am 13 yrs old, and I am extremely shy.
What sorts of questions should I ask when I go try him out?
What should I do while test riding a trail horse that is out of shape?
I have looked at lots of horses before, but I had an experienced horse person with me to ask all the questions.
This time, I am on my own.. with my mom.(who knows nothing about horses)
Don't get me wrong.. I know tons about horses.. but I am SOOO shy.. I am scared to ask questions (unless email), and I tense up when I test ride, because I don't like people watching me :(
What should I do??
