...my horse brakes anyway. Every fall there seems to be a certain temperature point where my horse switches over from a mild mannered gelding to a take no prisoner's wildcat. Today we went out trail riding and while he was strong and forward, he was still listening and coming back to me when I asked. He's a sweet boy, just gets a little happy sometimes. We were out with a mare which I'm sure he loved. He loves his ladies.
Anyway, we get to the last part of our ride which is a 1/2 mile canter stretch across a field. It's always the most fun part. Normally I let him open up into a good hand gallop and he comes back to me when I ask no problem. Today, I guess he and the mare must have had a side bet going. We hit the go button and they both shot forward like a someone had rung a bell. She's an appy and he's a formerly raced TB. Suffice to say, we ran out of field fast and neither horse was interesting in losing the race. We both peeled off in opposite directions and did the big save your butt circle. They then proceeded to walk calmly the rest of the way like it never happened. Goofballs. It got me wondering if anyone else's horse is starting to feel the affects of cold weather yet?
