And yea I give him a good whack on the neck when he tries to kick or pin his ears.
Our old appy mare would wait on every command, and would keep an eye on my bf, while trail riding, because she knew he was a novice rider.. She would actually try, and catch him, if she thought he was falling off, too. She was an awesome trail horse!!
When I ride my Twh.. I gained a little weight, and I noticed she was sniffing/nipping at my feet.. She never did this until I gained weight, so I quit riding her.. I was too heavy for her back, and it was making her uncomfortable.
Do you fly spray before trail riding?.. Mah horse never bucks, but she was bowing her back, and felt like she was going to.. I turn around, and there is a horse fly on her tail about the size of my thumb!!
