To ride, but yesterday he showed his butt. I invited some friends
Over to see how well I have progressed in riding.
It seemed like any other day, I put his bridle on, saddled him up,
And then rode him at a walk about 25 or 30 ft. And turned him
Around and rode him back to the gate at a run. After reaching
The gate, I chatted with my friends a little bit and decided I would
Ride again and he absolutely refused to go. I tried and tried.
Then I got off and let my friend who has been riding all her life
Give it a try and he still refused and walked side ways and backed
Up. Afterwards, I walked him a few feet out into the pasture and
Mounted him and rode him back to the gate, and he refused to
Turn around and ride again. I didn't want to push him to the limit.
Maybe he was having a bad day? Or did the mares out there in the
Pasture irritate him? He has had no problem with them
Before, except for feeding time, he gets aggresive around them.
Is anyone familiar with this? Any Suggestions?
