Well, I should say that I was bareback. So, no saddle, thank god, or else I'm sure it would have gotten messed up...shes a big girl. This isn't the first time I've had a horse try to roll on me, so basically what I was saying in my first post when I said that "it wasn't a big deal", I meant that it's not anything new to me. My little story on the arresting deal, was taught to me by a previous instructor when I first started to get into horses a looonngg time ago. So, when Iridehorses, says that I need to grow up, that means that my 60-something yr old instructor needs to grow up too? Also, I've heard that arresting situation before. What I did when I made her run around...I immediately got off, and as soon as she got up, I was after her like flies on garbage! Granted, I probably should have pulled her up immediately, yet I do not know the last time they were out, I'm sure it was a loonng time ago. They do not stay at my house, and techinically, they are my aunts horses. I basically adopted the one I'm talking about now, because no one wants to ride her because she's got a major 'go' button, which I've calmed her down with that, and I also sacked her out and she does amazing with unfamiliar objects now. I see all others views on how I should/should have taken care of things, but every horse is different and this method that I have works out, and has worked out for all the other horses I've worked with.
I don't necessarily think the forum is the "worst", yet the people on here just seem soooo **** judgemental, it can be extremely rediculous at times. All I'm looking for is advice on WHY she might have done this, not what I should do...ya know??? And those comments some leave when they say, "I'm biting my tongue right now"...that's not helping a bit dude! All I asked for was WHY, WHY, WHY...I don't have time for these childish comments SOME of the people on here leave/have left. Thats all I'm trying to say.
