Happy new year to everyone, health and happiness to you and yours
Stay safe out on the roads today, there's always one flarking nutter out there! And ride safe Stan
: i'm coming to live with you and she who must, until all the snow melts here.... Grace
: I wish you the best of luck in showing your beautiful Kes! How is training coming along? My trainer told me that it's good for a show horse to get a change of scenery even while in training, it changes the air she said lmao! Trust me she trains some pretttttty expensive horses. I'm at the darned bit crossroads now as well, Have sapphira in a snaffle D-ring, not happy with it, but hey, must go through the motions right XD!
I am off for the week, i'll get more pictures of my crazy one ....lol. Had my saddle fitter re-fit her saddle (again!) but had her get ON my horse to show her exactly what's wrong. I asked her "you ok on a green horse? She can be a bit scary sometimes, but don't worry just sit it out and make her do something else to change her mind so she stops her craziness" "Lady: Sure no problem"
So she gets on, I walk next to her -just.in.case- and she asks sapphira to trot. She knows all three gait commands very well, but is lazy if you don't -ASK- for it. Sassy is of course half azzing it....I growl at her and tell her to trot....She was like "ZOMG OK OK OK" and does her little freaky dance, the lady freaked out a bit, my horse wouldn't listen to her so I told sassy "HEY it's ok" she stopped freaking out did a wee trot (which was pretty mild, i've been on her and she has freaked out worse) aaaaaand the lady got off after one more turn around the arena. (at the walk)
Bright side: My saddle will finally get "fixed" properly.
Down Side: Scared my horse, no idea why she panicked like that, anyone have any ideas?
