So today I put my saddle on (usually just hop on bareback) and decided to go take a walk on the road. My dad was walking with me on foot. Chief was good the whole way, until I made the smart decision to trot him. Well he decided to start loping and bucking. I was determined to stay in the saddle and NOT hit the blacktop. I managed to stay on, get him to stop bucking, and make him stand still. I got off after I made him stand still and backed him up a lot. Then I brought him back to the pasture and made it run a god bit. I know I shouldn't have got off or tried to trot him on the road, but hey I don't always think before I do things. It scared me and made me mad all at the same time, but I just wanted to share that.
