Swimming With Horses?
Ok, well today I rode Nessie,a friend's mare who's thrown me off about four times. I rode her bareback;well bareback with a pad, cause she's got a really high wither. And she did well. A little bit rushed, but she did ok. She had one little play rear at a twig that fell off a tree but I stayed on and was ok.
So my question is, would it be safe to her her into the creek we ride to?
My friend does, but I'm nervous she'll roll or hit me? LOL. Cause she splashes in the water with her front feet.
Also, my friend rides her warmblood in there, but the mare is a bit touchy and tends to nip and do little kicks at other horses if they get too close on the ground. Would she do that in the water?
And yes, I would be riding her in the water in swimmers and boardshorts. Or would it be better to just get my joddies wet?
Thanks a bunch, and if you need me to make what I just said clearer just ask!
