Welcome, JustImagine, and your Arab is very pretty! Arabs are among my favorite breeds and I plan on getting one myself at some point in my life. :)
Snickers is such a goofball! I had a trail ride with him yesterday - our first ride after his abscesses - and I was planning to keep it light and easy, no strenous riding, at walk and trot only. So we're trotting down a nice little path and approaching a larger field which has fresh snow all over it, so I decide we should walk through it for safety reasons - if there were any holes, we wouldn't be able to see them. I cued Snickers to transition to a walk, but what do I get instead - he squeals gleefully, gives me a little buck (the "I'm so happy and full of energy!" kind) and off at canter he goes!
LOL Slowed him down and walked over to a nearby dirt road to let him canter a little after all. :)
