    Talking Good ride!! :)

    I'm not really sure if this would go here LOL

    I just went for a ride on my gelding... Well it was GREAT!!

    A little back story... He is very well broke... He can walk and trot (and probably canter) Fine but the last while (before the horses winter break) He was getting kinda bad... The last ride (Not the one today) He bucked me off and broke his reins. By the time we got new one (Couple weeks after he broke them) It got too snowy to ride.

    And I'll admit it! I was kinda scared to get back on him... So this jan. I started back into riding lessons ( I stoped for 1 year, I think?) So I could get better and get more riding muscle.

    Today was our first ride back! GOSH I was shaking! But I kept telling myself if I get scared or tense up, he was going to run. (He has runaway with me a couple of times) So I took lots of deep breaths and told myself "I am an accoplished rider!" I don't know if I actually am lol but I kepts saying that!

    So I walked him down their pasture but he kept trying to trot back up. (Which troting usually turns into RUN LIKE HELL!) So I did lots of half-halts and one-rein stops, until he he had a fit and a half! It wasn't that bad he just bounced up and down a couple of times. Kicked up his back legs a little.

    I just kept at it and when he did finally start listening to me I nearly cried because I was so happy that I can finally start riding him normally!

    We walked and did some backing up. He backs up really good! I mean when he finally stops trying to be the boss! :)

    But GOSH! I am sooo happy! And my mare Abby, my dad rode her and she was being a sweetheart! She stood very good when she was tied, something we have been working on lately :) She was like a little dream! A good one that is :) And she walked and stoped great!

    It was just such a good ride!

    That's wonderful that you can recognize when you have made progress. We are so quikc to notice out own shortcomings and forget to mention when we have grown as a rider. You have every right to pat your selff on the bakc. Now you know what it feels like to stay in there, RIDE your horse effectively and hang in until he comes back to your and recognizes the leadership that is there!
