Nightmare lesson!

Today's lesson was SO scary. Claudia was riding her pony, Oliver, with us. He's known to be the craziest horse in existance.. haha.
Well, she had him pretty nice in the beggining.. He bucked at another pony once but she got him to trot slowly & he only took off once. And then.. things went wrong. He was cantering nicely and then he turned into the real Oliver, galloping like a barrel racer and bucking and go absolutely crazy. Claudia got him to stop once or twice but he just did it again. So, next, she asked us to canter in a group. O.O
Ollie did the same gallop like a mad man thing, so Jorge [HorHay] who lovess to race, ran after him, and Tucker's just SO fast, so he was racing Oliver the whole time and almost got bucked in the face. No matter where I went, my horse, Spud, was run into by Oliver & I did NOT want to get in her way! Spud decided he wanted to have some fun, too, and galloped and bucked.. ughhh.
I was going to canter him again but he decided he didn't want to go. We jumped and he was good but it was still scary because Oliver was still galloping like an idiot & crashing into every horse.. =\
Let's just say, I'm glade it's over!

I am sorry that you had to endure this nonsense during your paid for lesson.

That's why I dislike group lessons. I would far prefer to get private lessons, because I would rather have the 1 on 1 and don't want to deal with other riders mishaps or unpredictable occurances.

Sorry you had a bad lesson :(

I love private lessons. In a group lesson, its like if one horse acts up the other does and then the other and so on.

God, I wish we had private lessons! : P
Yeaah. Oliver is just crazy, though, and it wouldn't have been safe for Claud to ride by herself.

Is there any way you can get private lessons?

Something like that happened at my old riding school too. It was sooo scary!
