I grew up with horses. My dad has always had horses, but my Mom didn't get into them until she graduated high school. She wanted to show though and my Dad had show horses, so voila! I was born onto a ranch with 20+ horses at a time and have always shown and been around them. A lot of leadline gymkhanas, leadline rail classes, before I was able to ride by myself and then I was that kid on the big ol' paint horse who was calm as a 30 year old gelding at his whopping 4 years of age...I did everything on that boy. Cows, penning, reining, rail classes, barrel racing...He's now old, lame, and fat in the pasture but we'd never sell him.
Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
