Listen I know you are going to give me lots of flac and critique for this, but I would like to share and find out your opinions. . . So yes I am preparing myself for your replies. I know that everyone on this forum loves giving criticism
as I see in all other posts, but this forum is here for help right?
So I have my horse for little more than a month and only started riding him recently, AND yes I have a trainer helping YES I have a trainer looking out for me and teaching me etc...but at the end of the day it's you on your horse and that's it.
Got on my horse, he's a good boy and very relaxed, doesn't spook a lot. My other younger horse (2 year old) was also out grazing and I walked past him. No worries, but as soon as my young horse saw us, he started running and fast... then my horse starting bolting after him, really fast! And I knew that I couldn't try to stop him now. Youngster kept on speeding up the pasture, and this is when I started enjoying the ride
, he was at full gallop (my first full gallop with him) and we did hit one stray tree branch. When he started slowing down I pushed him to go faster again. At least I did not fall off...
Eventually we stopped, and even though I got some scrapes and scratches from a thorn tree branch, I was okay and really enjoyed my first run, it was awesome!
But my concern here is... why they were acting silly and running off chasing each other like that. I had no control over the situation and this bothers me, I know that I don't have 100% bond with my horse yet, because I only have him for little more than a month. What do you guys think?
