Anyway, after a long lunch break, she was in the middle of the group. She'd kinda gotten her second wind and was a bit more energetic again, but I had her under control just fine. All the sudden she did a double barrel kick. I was fine, just a bit surprised. She's never done anything like that, never bucked or anything. The horse behind her was way, way behind her so she wasn't kicking at him. She's never kicked at another horse on a ride, even when they're right up on her butt. It almost seemed like a "gosh I'm having a good time" kinda thing. I've seen her do this when she's first let out into a pasture, kinda running around and "kicking up her heels".
After that, the last half of the ride was completely uneventful. She was in the lead for most of it and was downright pokey toward the end.
So my question is, what the heck? Was it really a "happy" thing like it seemed? It honestly would have kinda been fun if I'd expected it. Was she just bored? Was she annoyed with being held back? I'm just not sure what to think?
