    great ride!....with a minor downside

    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!

    New horse, new surroundings? Did fine. To be expected. Horse hadn't learned yet if you could make it do what you wanted, so decided to "tiny test" you first. You handled it.

    Not new surroundings, I've been to the ranch a thousand times before, it's practically home. The horse was new to me however, to ride at least, I've lead, pet, tacked up and put people on her more times then I can count. She hadn't been ridden in a while either. The funny thing is the way she reacted to being haltered I expected the opposite of her!

    Looking back on it it's kinda funny how she kept trying to seemed she really didn't understand that I couldn't walk out without dismounting first....well I COULD have but we have a rule against it for safety reasons and the only expetion is drill team at rodeos

    Lol sounds like she wasn't really "focused" on the ride, nor were you.

    Least that's what I took away from reading your post :P
