Now I can look back and laugh my *** off about it but at the time I was fuming LoL I hadn't ridden in nearly a year except a few hours maybe once a month and was expecting this calm experienced horse. Nope, she had never been to an event let alone one of this size. I was out of shape and all I could think is this horse is going to be the death of me LoL Of course being in college and young I was determined to make it work :)
Once she got the cow thoughts we were done. I had lost all control and one of those ponies would have been corralled if I didn't get her out when I did. In retrospect its quite hilarious especially cause the one she was set on was a black and white paint with no tail and a roached mane... it looked like a cow LoL I can't blame her there LoL
And on the plus side we also discovered her passion in cattle work. Before they wanted to do Eventing, trails, and endurance. Now she is working cows all over the west coast :)
Alls well that ends well...
Definitely soured me to large rides especially because the horse I described were 80% of the type of horses there. Most people couldn't finish the ride. And I'm honestly surprised the ambulance only came once but thankful too Posted via Mobile Device
