use a red ribbon or not?
Hi I am showing at a local show this weekend with a new mare i'm leasing for the winter and I'm not sure if I should put a red ribbon in her tail or not.
When I signed off on the lease they said "you know about her bucking right?" but she as been getting better and better at home. I have had the past four rides with out a single buck!
But often she will stop the first time you ask her to trot and will kick out from the stand still with you kick her forward or use the crop, but then she is fine. And depending on her mood she may buck when you ask for the canter then be fine. I have never shown her, but she doesn't buck at other horses and I don't think she will really do anything especially if she is feeling any bit forward that day she won't kick. But i'm nervous if she does pull her stop kick then trot off someone could just be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
