    My terrible horse!!!! But she stayed on :)

    So CLB (Cute Little Blonde- my daughter) took Citrus out in the big arena today. Usually she rides him in the round pen... and this is why... while our horse is a calm and sweet spirited guy, he will take advantage of an inexperienced rider- he is a tester, as we like to put it.

    CLB cued him to canter and he toooooook off.... well okay, he cantered faster than I would have liked.... but, she stayed on, and at the end of the rail, she cued him to stop, which he did by sliding..... my heart was racing, my blood was pumping, but my 8 year old child turns in the saddle and said "That was sooooooooooooooo fun!!" Phew!!!

    Then CLB cued him to canter again.... he toooook off again... well not tooook off, but he was going faster than I liked.... then the horses in his pasture literally starting galloping by. My normally calm Citrus put his head down and shook it (any one know what this means??) as he was cantering by with the human I created on his back..... my heart jumped out of my chest, begging him to stop with all these shenangins..... again, CLB cued him to stop, which he did, and I reliazed I could again breath. CLB turns around to me and says "I felt like I was going to fall off, but I told myself I was not going to, so I stayed on...."

    Okay. I am fine. She is fine. He is fine. And I think both my daughter and my horse learned something about the other today.... like who is boss....
