I got in a yelling match with my roommate once... then went to the barn to ride. I felt okay... but was clearly NOT okay to ride. I was forceful and pushy with my horse and he became upset and confused... we were both building and building and suddenly he reared. It wasn't a huge rear and he didn't throw me, but I was clearly making him frightened. I dismounted, untacked, and put him in the turn out. He canter away from me, rolled a couple times, and then came back to temperature check me. We all do it... even if we don't realize how worked up we are, they can feel all the crap we carry around with us. Mirrors to our souls, right!? Haha!
Life seems mighty precious, when there's less of it to waste.
