Oh my poor dear gelding

So we went to our third horse show of the season this weekend and had yet another adventure. I took Hershey to the warm up arena and tied him to the outside of the rail to groom him, while also getting him used to the warm up arena chaos. Well a few minutes later a horse rides by and starts freaking out, acting like he wanted to jump the arena wall. After a while they got him under control and moved on. Later I saw the owner of the horse and she explained to me the situation.

Apparently the horse was a stallion. All the mares he has breed have been tied up in a similar fashion, and he apparently does not know the difference between a mare and a gelding. That stallion wanted to rape my gelding. My horse is to sexy for his own good.

Placed last, but it was the first time through this season with no freak outs so I was happy with it. He's never been good at rail classes.

Northeast Arkansas Horse Show Association. They are all held at the ASU Equine center(where I board my horse) and the classes and the classes are only four dollars so that's how I got back into horse showing after two years of riding for pleasure only.

OMG. That is almost too funny. Boy, people need to learn to control their stallions. Don't worry about your places, you will get better. Just keep at it. :)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
