So Rainy is so not a lesson horse. I was at the barn tonight, cleaning stalls. The basic lesson instructor (there's one instructor who does show team lessons and the other teaches the basic lesson- they're sisters, BTW) arrives a little late, and I said hello, continued on my mucking, etc. Well, she and one of the students, who is in college, very advanced in riding, but chose not to ride on show team (not interested in showing) started talking, along with another 'helper' (somewhat instructor, teaches the younger students). They brought up the lesson from the night before, and Sarah, the instructor, calls me over.
Her: "Hey, just wanted to say that I used Rainy in lessons last night."
Me: "Oh, okay."
Her: "Yeah, she was in a really fiery mood."
Me: (nodding, I know my horse.) "Yeah, she gets like that."
Her: "I had [insert child's name here] on her, since she owns [insert rambuncious horse's name here]. I thought she'd be okay."
Her: "Rainy was so fired up though! She wasn't listening, or doing what she wanted- when she went over the ground poles she was going crazy!"
Me: "Um...yeah. She gets that way over poles, she loves them..."
Her: "Yeah, she even started cantering! I was like, 'Okay, bring her down, bring her down!'
Me: (gulp 2)
Her: "And then she did a little buck...[insert child's name here] rode it out though, I was like, 'Yeah...that was a buck!'
Me: hehehehehe....(dying inside) she's a hyper horse... (awkward shuffle back to the stall I was cleaning)
Anyway, that's my embaressing story. She's really fine for lessons, just not the level she was used in. *sigh* And she was in a bad mood, obviously.
Cookies for anyone who got through that, and any embaressing stories from you all?
