So I need a back up plan......i've just started riding my OTTB mare, she's so quiet and easy to handle but fairly nervous when it comes to being ridden. She's been going well so far as i've been going slow and giving her time to relax and realise it's not all that bad to be ridden again.
BUT even though she is so willing and really listening to me i'm a little worried that when I start to ask more of her-some trot/canter transitions etc. she may respond by bucking/bolting (she does buck occasionally on the lunge) I guess i'd feel alot more confident if I had a plan if this did happen.
Have you experienced bucking/bolting and how have you controlled it..what has worked for you? If you've got any tips for me that would be great. Thanks
