    Sorry for getting snarky RT. I'm sure you are right but on contemplating it, I'm sure it was more confidence in myself than her. Its been a couple of years ago that I was in a situation where she refused to go where I asked her. She has gotten much better at stepping down the side of a steep drop into a creek. When she refused it was in the Kiamichi mountains in SE Oklahoma. We were off the marked trails on a VERY rocky river crossing. If we stepped off the rocks we were in black water. I'm sure its one of those times my horse knew better than I did. We found a different crossing and all was good.
    She has no problem stepping off of a trailer. Its those 3-4 foot straight drops into water that she likes to balk at but we are working on it. She and I are getting more comfortable with her sliding on her butt down a slope
    Again sorry, I was having a bad day yesterday.

    Yuck, RD. Good deal on the cutters. I live in the desert now and we have a fanny pack we take with pliers, comb and hoof pic in case a horse becomes friendly with a cactus.

    We are good V, was poking fun and that is the problem with text, there is too much left to interpretation. Sounds like you are on the right road and have more 'rough riders' trail experience then I. Sounds like so much fun!!

    ReiningTrainer this is a true story. Sunday mornings I always ride, always. I was in the barn tacking up my horse when the owner came in and told me of the most awful dream she had last night. The barn has 25 horses in it and a horse belong to one of the boards, she named the horse was tangled in a fence and totally shed the skin off his hind leg. After the vet spent hours sowing up the horse he found the leg was broken.
    She was so releived to see him standing healthy and sound in his stall. It was all so real last night.
    She told all this to me that sunday morning.
    Monday I get a call from her, she is at work and she just got the call that that same horse was just in a terrible accident and all his skin was taken off his back leg in a bad tangle in a fence??????
    I was to run over the tell the vet his leg is broken.
    I went and told the vet of her dream and he said he was just at the neighbours putting her horse down. It had just broken his leg. The properties touch.
    This is true and happened exactly as I posted. It sends shivers up my back thinking about it.
