Little Incident :P

I rode my new horse for the third time yesterday. She is a Canadian Warmblood mare that's had 3 months on her but just had a month off. Since I got her 2 weeks ago tomorrow I've ridden her 3 times. In one flat lesson, one jump lesson and yesterday. She's super calm but we did have one tiny incident, or two. After a superbly behaved flat work session we went out on to the open space with all the barns x-country jumps in it. Water jump and banks included. She was all ears pricked and high stepping and I was chill, it wasn't bad. So one of my friends comes galloping through the water jump and my mare{Regena} takes off. Oh before she bolts she gives a tiny crow-hoppy rear. So after about a stride I get her under control and we continue to walk.

Then!!! As I'm walking between the water jump and one of the horses pens my friend gallops through the water jump again. In the horse pen the TB is galloping around and bucking. Regena flips out. She actually rears this time not the wierd crow hop thing and bolts. A couple strides and I've got her back under control. Immediatly I go in to the arena and do about 20 more minutes of flat. My friend is done her schooling so I walk Regena around the x-country area. Letting her sniff all the jumps and ignoring the water {she had wraps on}. I made her walk and we even trotted a bit. Despite the rears and the fact that I almost broke my nose on her head when she reared the second time the ride was amazing!!

Okay, the rearing would have scared the manure out of me! Sounds like you had a good time.

I would definitely get her in that water at some point :)

Is she new to the place you are keeping her? I read that this is only your 3rd time on her so I didnt know if you just moved her there. Maybe she needs a little more time to adjust before she can be completely comfortable.

Definitely sounds like you are doing well with her, keep introducing that situation to her (friend galloping through the water jump), eventually she wont even care.

Yea Dubya she had gotten there the week before. New mare and all. I think it was a good experiance. I've walked, trotted and cantered her out there a few times more, never with a friend but she's used to the area now.

I can't believe I got her. After my last warmblood I swore to never get another cause I hate how lazy they are as a breed. I like a more forward horse. Yet somehow I got stuck wit her. Just to good an opportunity to pass up. She's 6 years old, her dads Gervantus II, she's worth 10 grand and all I pay is $150, I split board with the owner.

I'd have to disagree with the lazy Warmblood statement ;] All of the ones I've ridden have been feisty.

Rearing is a very dangerous habit, and so is taking off when other horses run by. You'll have to, have to, have to accustom her to being around other running horses. Maybe lunge and ride her in a paddock with 2-3 horses, and make her listen to you. If you feel her tensing up as other horses pass, back her up or turn her in a circle to get her focused. Rearing is scary and VERY dangerous!

Congrats on your new horsey, hope things work out! :]

Yea its something new to her and we're working through it. She's very very green so i'm not crazy worried bout it yet. I'm surprised you've had fiesty warmbloods. All the ones i've ridden are lazy. She was at first but now we have an understanding, I aqueeze, she goes. :)
