Now, about two weeks ago my horse Baltic simply -stopped- dead while I was riding him. Not budging no matter what I did. Of course my first true reaction was extreme worry after he -refused- to respond to any aids and encouragement at all and I was fretting that he was somehow in pain -- so I call over my mother to come take a look.
It was quite a cold day, as its winter over here and we were having a cold front to boost.
As my mother approaches, standing before him, comes to comment that...
He's looking absolutely relaxed, his eyes all droopy and half asleep and he's perched himself directly in a spot of sunlight in the arena, basking his little heart out!! (In my worry I failed to notice we stopped direct in it!)
