The scratcher (BED)
At 0930 I was walking, Stella threw a fit, but I needed the exercise. It took her a couple of miles before she settled. I was running from one side of the road to the other making like a cattle dog and horse. It is amazing the length we go too, to teach.
Just as the cows were arriving from the holding paddock the skies opened and down came the rain. It fair bucketed down and did unsettle Stella, add to that we put Kate, and she who must be obeyed, in front seperating paddock mates who had spent the week feasting on good sugar loaded grass. I tried to ride a 1300 pound sugar rush. Tossing her head, taking it to the ground, not a good place for a horse to have its head, it is normaly accompanied be the rider flying forward at a rate of knots, just after the buck. All in all she played up, stomping, laying her ears back, tail swishing and a new behaviour tossing her head back. Kate also played up. But a good ride over all.
