First off, I know a 12 year old girl and a 8 yo TB mare for a first horse isn't very practical, but whats done is done and I feel I have an unbreakable bond with her. When we first got her we didn't know anything about her except she was Molly an 8yo Tb that was most likely raced. After 6 long weeks I finally saddled her and got on. It was a long process but now, after 9 months I ride a lot. But I mean around the paddock a lot. As soon as we step out on the road, im nervous. I know just riding at the paddocks is boring for her, but im so scared on the road. When I first got her I lead her on the road and she was pretty idiotic. But a month or so a go I rode her with some friend around the quiet roads and all was well. I also rode her to the forest twice and up the sand dunes, and she was pretty good. But for some reason I tense up on the road. Should I start taking it slow?
She always has her TB moments and I think that's what scares me.
As she gets older will she quieten down?
I'm scared im not being fair on her when I ride my friends horse on the roads and beach all the time.
Cookies if you read that! It just suddenly hit me; Am I a total idiot and being unfair? I love her so much and want whats best for her.
