For example, when Clyde spooked on the lunge line a few days ago. My mind blanked out and to be honest, I don't even fully remember what I did. I made him stop, stand there, and then continued.
When he bucked, I knew just to sit it out and chill for a minute. When he took off, I grabbed a rein and pulled to the left. Doing a leg yield and his throat latch got caught on a letter in the arena and I couldn't get it undone? Stayed totally calm and called out to my instructor.
I'm 13. Have been riding for about 8 years.
What's up with this? O.O
