Ok I don't know if it's because I haven't ridden in over a week or what but tonight when I went out to camp for wrangler tring and rode western everything SO MUCH differant then usual. The horse I was riding had alot of energy and while I feel I handled her well I also think I could have handled her better....I just felt so out of my element. Both times we trotted she cantered and when we canteredI had to take a couple extra circles inside the other horses to get her slowed down to re-join the line...and after the lesson while we had "free time" she kept trying to leave the arena! I managed to get her away from the gate each time but she was persistant! She was just so eager to get back to her friends she wasn't thinking clearly in stead of "let the human of then we can go" she was thinking "come ON! Let's GO! What? No you don't need to get of my back first, of course not! Don't be silly! Now let's GO!"
All in all it was a great ride, aside from feeling out of my element and tons of fun! Can't wait for sumer!
