I'm excited to ride with this woman, but I'm also SO terrified!
This is a group setting. My horse is awful in groups! He gets prancy, strong, and throws out bucks, he tries to bolt and he gets herd bound, but if he leads he gets VERY tense and stops and tries to swing around until I crack him with a whip to get him forward again, and then repeat!
I'm hoping I can work this out today with an experienced eventer.
Someone help me calm my nerves! If I'm as nervous as I am now when I get on all hell will break loose!
Plus does anyone think I would benefit from using a running martingale?
