So we have about 8 in. Of snow and I have been trying to keep riding every second day and I did so today. Taking him out of his pen he was already a little wierd he spooked at the cows and the door. I got him all saddled up and began doing some trot circles (keep in mind I am riding in the snow). He was doing well. I decided to lope a few circles to the left he did well. I started him to the right and he hollowed out and had a had a fit . Evading the bit, running like a mad man, throwing some bucks, tosing his head, dropping his shoulder, the whole sha bang when I got him back to a stop I tried a few more times and got the same results. I just gave up and got off.He spooked at the sled,the door and his grain bucket when I dismounted.
I was shook up for a while. I watched him stand in his pen for a bit contemplaiting what to do. I decided to lope him on the longe line a few times to see if it has someting to with me or the saddle. I felt as if we lost a bunch of training.
I was curous to see everyones opinions on what happend and if I should give lunging a try.
