I got her stopped and everyone was impressed I had stayed on her. I was kinda proud of myself too, it was a real crow hopping stop.
I hate those.... but I'm getting used to it because the little babies aren't quite sure how to stop yet.... But whats worst is when they're at a dead run going SIDEWAYS!! It's awkward and you can't balance very well..... I wonder what that looks like
Ihad never thought much about the O.R.S. always trained my horses to stop with it then i got a new mustang that was broken in colorado and i had ridden him a few times here no big deal . but i was rideing a wagon train in georgia and a mare spooked behind me and my horse took off almost sending me out the back door thank gosh for the night latch but we were headed to a lake and he was bent on going in and i wasnt since i dont swim , well thats when i relized he didnt know a thing about O R S well he hit the water by him self and i went to hospital with a broken ankle . Cause i got off at a dead run cause i aint goin swimmin for no one not even my horse . He stop about 10ft in water to his bellie , and guarantee he learned the one rein stop when we got home . lil foot note i still cant swim hehe haha but he knows to stop when you just say whoa boy now
I use them once in awhile if Lexi tries to run off or something, like in the arena she can be a little bit hyper some days, so it helps a lot to slow her down. ;) I swear, she acts like she's a TB sometimes!
