Ok so I've been riding now for 3 year for like 4 days a week before that I did like 2 year of just riding on the week ends. Ok so I have a 5 year old horse named 2 bits. About a year ago he tryed to buck me off when I asked him to lope. My butt hit the back of the saddle. I got scared and wouldnt lope for 6 months.:( sence then I've had a lady trainer get him lopeing better for me. Some days are better then others. Yesterday I couldnt get him to lope at all. The gurls at the barn basicly yelled at me saying get his head then cue. But when he would take off hed go really quick I guess didnt feel that quick but the gurl yelled about that hold him back he don't need to go that fast. When I did hed stop. Then theyd yell cue him and hold. I think I confused him because he just wouldnt lope at all after all that. Hed just do that jack hammer trot. Witch makes me lose my blance and I allmost fall off. So to save my self I grab the horn.then they yell don't grab the horn. I was so upset. That I didnt lope the rest of the ride just walk jog. I felt like giving up. I wanted to ride a horse for such a long time. Ever sence I was a kid. I don't want to give up. I love this horse to death. Everything eles he's such a good boy. Jog beautiful head allway down. Sidepasses and pivits. Dose showmanship nice. I feel like the gurls at the barn don't undersatnd. Theyve rode sence they were kids. I never got that chance. Has anyone eles had this promblem.
Oh they today when I rode with just me and the lady trainer. He did awsome. Still did that jack hammer trot to start lopeing. But we did it. I feel a little bit better. But has anyone eles gone throgh this.
