I just moved my horse to a stable the other day and it's amazing. I looove it.
Anyways, they have a round pen (yay!) so I saddled Gidg up and rode in there. It was amazing! She trotted and loped without issues..well she was kinda grumpy for a few but got over it. I even got her to side pass!!!! She listened to everything I said and it made me feel a lot more confident and I think the lessons have helped me a great deal already. Now, I don't know how my position was...I rode in sneakers which I wish I didn't.
There is this horse that walks around the round pen and he is a devil. I thought he was goin to jump over the round pen and take a bite out of my horse and all we were doing was working. Gidget ended up bucking and peed but I calmed her down and things went great.
She didn't listen in the pasture and we ended up trotting sideways because she wanted to turn around and I wouldn't let her...gotta work on that.
