What did i do wrong in this part?
-Alright so last Saturdays ride went well but was abit problematic. Ok it started out when i approached Ana and i could tell on her face somethin was up. Well anywas i tacked her up and stuff, but when i tried to get her to stand so i could mount, she kept movin.. and i had the reins in my hand and i kinda nudged back and said "NO! NO! STAND!!" then she stopped, then when i tried again and she did it again so i repeated what i did the first time, and she stood. 3rd time she did it again, well by this point i am thinkin this process is gonna continue, so i lead her over to my trainor and ask her to hold her while i mount and i finally got on.
2. Well after i mounted i started to warm Ana up by just kinda walkin and neck reinin her through the cones.. then idk, she just started to speed up and kept tryin to trot when i was only askin for a walk.. So i kept tellin her "easy anna! EASY!!, WALK....! Walk....!" and she kinda slowed but kept tryin to speed up. Well then when i finally asked for a trot ( i could tell she was gonna do somethin funny) she then fast trotted and then into a lope (which personally was fun, because i like to lope), which i also did not ask her to do because i did not kiss to her. So I then told her easy, and she kept flippin to a trot, fast trot, lope.. idk what was goin on, so i halted her, and just kept tryin to keep her at only the pace i was askin for. SO i dont know what i was doin wrong.
3. then when we where gettin ready to go trail ridin, i was goin out of the arena and gonna wait for the trainor, i had a horrible time tryin to get Ana to stop.. I would get her to stop then she would take baby steps, lol as if to test me.. but i kept on her and after pullin back, sittin back, and constantly askin for a HALT! she finally stopped.. I am confused there why she wouldn't stop.
Idk from what i was feelin from Ana was alot of ENERGY and restlessness. I think she was really testin me, but i am not for sure.. I just dont know if i did anythin wrong or where i could improve. Ana banana is a well mannered horse, but she was really actin up.
Then at the end of the ride, i put her halter on and tied her up.. and just petted her and gave her some lovin.
The really good thing on that ride was i loped for abit, and man canterin is SO much fun!
I am just stressin, because i dont know what i did wrong or what i could do better.
