Nice truck HR! One more year until I can get my license, and I have to get a job NOW because my dad won't pay for my lessons all of a sudden :/ And since the horse I was riding got hurt, I now ride a little 14.3 AQHA mare, who I first learned on. She was put on stall rest for 5 and a half months (Why I stopped riding her) and now I'm back on her... Totally different horse! Totally pissy and has such an attitude, bucks when you canter her without circling, so I guess she first taught me how to ride and now she's teaching me how to deal with naughty little horses! However, for some reason she really loves lateral work and is really good at it, which is fun :)
The horse I'm working with/re-training buck whenever he canters also. He's had 5 years of being a pasture pet and was spoiled rotten. He had no ground manners whatsoever (is what-so-ever one word? Haha) and wouldn't pull his nose out of the grass whenever you worked with him. He's waaaaay better now but still acts like a brat a lot. Whenever you hit him with the reins when you ask him to canter because he's still lazy and will sometimes not respond to foot cues he takes off bucking haha. At first it scared me because he's sometimes explosive when he does it, but it's kinda fun too . Haven't fallen off yet though, I've been able to hold on and regain control.
And thanks guys! I love the truck. But if I had my choice I'd ride a horse everyday to school . Blue eyed pony, I can't wait to get a horse trailer hooked up to it!
I know! I love him sooo much and he's a really sweet horse! I wish he was mine and I could ride him! I just feed and brush and muck out the stalls for him . Owners won't let me ride...they say he's too old, but he's only 23. He's been a pasture pet for over 10 years.
