My horse is being difficult. Like, no joke, she misbehaves simply to make you angry and see what you'll do. My instructor says its because she has so much pent up energy and all her outlets are negative actions that arent helping anyone, and she told me to just take the horse for a long, long gallop and just let her run, and then hopefully afterwards she'd be a bit easier to handle.
Well, this will be the first time I've galloped her, and truth be told...im kind of nervous. Its not that I think i'll fall or anything...im just concerned that she might trip and fall, or step in a groundhog hole and...break her leg or something terrible. And she's just so strong and fast and im worried it'll go to her head or something...I worry too much. I know I do. My problem is that I just think too much...about everything. Besides waiting for the fields to get cut so its easier to see where we're going, what else can I do to decrease the risk of her falling or getting hurt? My instructor said that sometimes the horse will see the hole or obstruction before you do and take measures to protect themselves, but...argh! Im just getting worked up over nothing probably.
