Galloped!

Hey,

Well I galloped on Chinga for the very first time. It was great. I love having a ex-race horse. When I sat back in the saddle I didn't even have to pull back on the rains he went automaticly into a canter.

It was also the very first time I've ever galloped~

That great! I'd like to say I think it's fun too, but I still can't get myself comfortable at the higher speeds. It just feels so weird when they get lower to the ground and the nice 3 beat gait turns into a mess of legs. A slow hand gallop is about all I want to do so far. I also have a ex-racehorse. He actually seemed to know it was Derby day on Saturday. We were out trail riding and started cantering, but he decided he wanted to go faster while I was cool with cantering. We came to a common ground and hand galloped. Next time maybe I'll just bridge my reins and let him go!

Fun isn't it I don't do it often but once in awhile, the feeling of speed, the wind in your hair....Nothing like it

Happy first-gallop day! :P

Nice to have discovered one of the best gaits in a horse? (the best in non-gaited horses ;) )
I lve having a race-breed too, he's not an ottb but a standardbred; both his rack and his galop are really fast tho, without being out of controle. It's just lovely!


Always keep your head up, but be careful to keep your nose at a friendly level.

O.O Careful with a broken rib - you can do some serious internal damage like that.

When I broke mine I could walk comfortably (or breathe for that matter) for almost a month, and I definitely couldn't ride for a while.
