Hi guys, this weekend if the weather is good I'm hoping to take my little green mare Ruby out xc with PC. She's never gone xc before so it will be her first time
I was wondering If you have any tips etc or any previous experience at riding green horses out xc. I would really appreciate some advice ;]
I asked the Pc instructor if she thought that Ruby would be ready for it and She said she's well able for it and it would be a great experience for her. I wont be doing much, it's really just to help her gain experience. Get her used to a different atmosphere, in company with the other horses and maybe pop over some teeny tiny obstacles.
For a bit of info on Ruby, she is 5 rising 6 around that. I have been the one who has ridden her from day 1. She has been under saddle since September so still green. She's done hacking and jumping.
She has a incredibly good nature, so far hasn't done much bolting bucking etc. The only thing is that she gets excited and fresh in new surroundings which is normal for a green horse (a lot of whinnying!!). She has never been ridden in a open field before but have done trail rides up a mountain before and done some cantering there if that helps :)
So any advice would be great thanks.
