So, just got back from going to the beach with my friend and her horse.
The horse was really dirty.muddy, they put the saddle on without brushing her.
First, they rode around in the school field.. galloping and stuff.
Next, we walked up steep hills to an arena.
She practiced "tire" racing, for a long time. The horse has never done it before...
After that, the horse was dripping in sweat all over.
We walked to the beach, and we brought her for a swim in the water.
She was cantering her through the water, and swimming with her horse.
For about 20mins... then my other friend grabbed onto the horses tail, and was dragging behind in the water, while my other friend rode.
Then, they were crawling under her legs, and belly, and jumping off her..etc.
The horse, was moaning, and grunting.. nostrils flaring.. tired..
Then after about 30-40mins.. they got out of the water.
It was really windy today, a storm was brewing up..
I said "Your not going to put the saddle on her, are you?"
They were like "Yeah..."
They didnt have any brushes or anything, so they just chucked the saddle on her back, and did up the girth.
I kept telling them, to just put the saddle on her back, but leave the girth undone, and walk back..
They were like.. no.. I wanna ride.
Then I left..
Do you think that what she was doing with her horse was bad?
