    This is the first problem I need to work on. Just bought a 7 yr old ex racehorse. She has a tendency to get tired and when I am riding she tries to roll. I don't know what to do about that. I lunge her before I ride her because she is really high strung and hasnt been worked for a while. Is there some sort of tack I could get. I already have to use a martingale because she holds her head too high.

    The horse I used to work with did it. Was pretty unexpected on 1st time so I just did nothing. On 2nd time I was fast enough to jump off and I smacked him really good with the reins and yell at him when he laid down. He got up right away and that was the last time he did it on me.

    Hmm. Well it hasnt wactually happened yet but she tries, I usually hold her head up and turn her. Im trying to work with her to get rid of all her problems. I want to turn her into show horse. :roll:

    I just stay on and smack with one of my split rains, most of the time they jump right up. If you where spurs do not stick him with them when they go down, it will not hurt your leg as bad if your in sand. I do the same thing when they do that in a pond, but I hate to get wet, and have to take my 17" boots off and pour the water out of them . All you have to do is jump off and then beat them back up most of the time they will never do it agin.

    K so it is something I can fix. I just didnt want it to be something I couldnt fix and I would have a rolling horse all the time.
