I'm evil too!
My horse decided that he was no longer going to go on trail rides because he'd had to walk through a puddle the last time :roll:. Asking to go forward resulted in him backing up until his back feet landed in a ditch
, I tried circling which resulted in him snatching the bit and trying to book it for the barn. You better believe I stopped him, pointed him down the road and whacked him with the reins (it was all I had!!). I then proceeded to whack him over and over and over as the lil twerp tried planting his feet every 3 steps.
Longest trail ride of my life and we never made it to the end of the driveway of the barn I board at as I turned around as soon as he willingly walked forward when asked. Ah well, my poor beat-up horse
now willingly walks down the driveway.
