My DH is not horsey. The first time he ever rode was after he and I started dating.

After a few rides in the corral, we went riding out on the trail. I was riding my very green broke Arab, Royale, and he was riding my very well broke QH, Cody. Part of the trail is this nice, wide open field. I asked if he wanted to trot and he said he was.

He started off trotting and all of the sudden Cody started cantering. Thinking Cody was doing the unthinkable and running away with him, I managed to catch up and started giving instructions on an emergency stop. He pulled up Cody (who stopped with no resistance), looked at me with a big smile and said, "That was fun!" He'd allowed Cody to canter on purpose, not realizing MY danger (on a very green horse that had never cantered with a rider before).

All of this was MY fault. I'd never told hubby the rules of the trail (not cantering unless everyone is ready/has been warned) and probably shouldn't have been riding such a green horse out on the trail with a newbie. Regardless, all ended well and I learned my lesson.

BTW, I have owned seven horses and NONE of them would kick if I touched/pushed on their flank ("tickle spot").

All I can say is you must be a pretty good looker if he holds the horse for 20 mins.

Well moving forward, maybe it would be a good idea to try working her flanks over a bit. As well I think she may benefit from being tied while working another horse.

Or you could just make it up to him, that always works for me. Then again you do sound like a younger couple if he is holding a horse for 20 mins so you probably already have. wink wink

Well good luck with things
