My first gallop was at around 10:30 at night on our old (now retired and rehomed) Aranian gelding... My friend and I were riding (she was on our now semi-retired old mare) and we'd been told to ride down to a friends house... On the way back, said friends decided to drive their 4-wheeler between the horses and the horses... mine in particular, loved to chace things like that... so they were off like bullets... Didn't stop for almost 2 miles and ran full blast all the way back to my uncles house. I think my friend and I were about... 12, and had only been riding a lot for about a year... we hadn't really progressed to a fast canter yet, but after that wild gallop, we were hooked.
