I can do ground work also, and lunge. I also feel like im limited to what I can do, its not really a make your self at home type of barn its more like what the heck are you doing and why?...This one time I was doing ground work trying to brake her brace in the shoulders and a girl was glaring at me and watching me, I felt really acward. Like any thing I do with my horse im going to be watched and judged. But we only have jumps,cones,barrels available to us to use...I don't know how those can help with desensitizing.
And see I had thought we got past this. We were doing really well and not spooking. But then this with all three bucks just turned me inside out.
And you know this also makes me really mad! Here I was an advance begginer, only having one horse that I only got to ride once. The BO sells me gypsy tells me she no buck,kick,rear, not spooky, 15.2 does well on trails bla bla. WELL I've been bucked plenty of times. One time the BO set me up for a buck. Gypsy was being really bad in a group lesson. I knew it was coming. The BO told me to canter BOOM she's bucking. And the BO says" yep I knew that was going to happen." YAH WELL SO DID I. But I trusted her... I sticked her the other day she's 15 hands not 15.2! She dosent doo well one trails.... I wonder what els isnt true, oh yah and every time I groom its a biting kicking frenzy, all she does is threaten... Hmmm
