I'm glad to say I don't fall often and my horses are decently behaved most of the time. I'm used to my main trail horse who immediately stops and stands by me if I do fall. I don't like to hold onto the reins if I fall but if I felt I had to and was capable of doing it I would.
My other horse however I have noticed from my one fall, other peoples that he runs off the moment your gone. I also saw him fight one person who held on to the reins for awhile. Since I want to trail ride I don't want him running off on me if I can help it in the event of a fall. Only I'm not sure how to go about it. Is it a respect thing? Something to do with training? I would love some opinions/advice.
I was thinking respect would have a lot to do with it. I don't think my main horse respects me as much as I would like to think he does, but he always stops so I was thinking it was more training. So I'm confused and any help would be awesome.
