    Heat can help

    Today I took a short 4.5 mile ride in the heat, 98F to be exact. I first warmed my mare up so she appreciated the heat. She just recently recovered from a hoof injury so I started riding her again. Anyway, she is sure footed but has trouble contianing her enthusiams in rough terrain, to the point she will often break into a trot going downhill in solid rock and gravel w boots on. I have to put smb boots on her for protection from the inevitable "stumble". Hmph. All my previouse horses were raised in rough terrain..and "got it" before they got a saddle on their back. I got her as a filly, and have had the hardest time teaching her "the obviouse" on the trail. While she has come a long way, its hard not to compare her to "trail savvy" others before her. She somehow recovers from her "moments" of poor judgement, but it is nerve racking...especially since I do not like to pull up going down a rocky hill! Sooooo...the heat slowed her down just enough today that she did the right thing and started studying the obsticals before her. TADA!! Just had to tell someone.
