haha when i read tht it reminded me... When i was just follin' around with rena, I was riding bridless and well, i got to bossy for her liking. (this waswhen i first got her, i had a easygoing,do anything,go anywhere gelding before i got rena, who is a bossy,independant mare) I was trying to get her to back up, which she didnt want to, and all of a suddenly she took of at a trot, heading straight for the wall at her fast bumpy trot, she totally ignored ay of my aids, and when she got to the wall she swung her quarters around, and i slid right off.
haha I was scared stiff, she really showed me how much power i had, and how much power i had when she GAVE it to me. haha ever since then we have come to an 'agreement' where i cannot drill her, or get to pushy. I ask her opinion, and when she knows more then me, well, i let her do her thing, because she has the best work ethic ive ever seen. She lets me teach her things, as long as im willing to let her teach me things. haha
If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.
