LOL He wasn't slipping! Hehehe Seriiously he was only about 8 inches off the ground and she was almost asleep. I'll try and post a pic tomorrow of the two of them so you can see the size. I tried to get a pic of him while on the horse, but I couldn't figure out his cell phone. Told him we would have to do this again with my real camera, he said NO WAY. He hates horses, well riding them or having anything to do with them that is.
My horse bolts occassionaly and that is something that terrifies me. So I ride with a preconceived idea of her bolting. I try really hard to not have those feelings and I usually judge how she will be before riding. Some days she is perfect and we have great trails rides, other days she is so up and forward its just aweful.
Took her to the beach a few weeks ago and there were so many things thrown at her at once it just became too much and she did bolt with me on. I handled it alright, but still its scarey.
I did take her and my grandson to a show a couple weeks ago, and did some leadline classes with him, she did really good for that.
I have another all day ride on Saturday, next week is a show and then taking her to a trick training clinic. I figured if I just keep plugging away at this I will beable to control those fears. At least I hope and that is the plan.
