Dakota Refuses!

This is Dakota refusing a jump!!

The camera died right in the middle of this clip, that's why it's cut short. Sorry you can't see the whole refusal!

Here's what happened after the end of the clip: I ducked to the right of his neck because he planted his feet and swerved left. I just got a little bit off balance but I didn't really come close to falling so it's all good. We came around and did it again and he was good for the most part for the rest of the lesson.

This was my second time riding Dakota. I'm used to riding Ricky, a little bay pony who's a lot smaller than Dakota. I'm still getting used to riding a bigger horse. It feels completely different.

So this was the first jump of the lesson. It was a tiny jump and he just ran out because I didn't have enough leg on and I was kind of nervous since he had been acting up during the cantering part of the lesson. In the beginning of the lesson he enjoyed a nice quick roll with all his tack on. -.- Luckily he stayed on his knees for a few seconds before going down completely so I could step off.. lol.

Anyways here's the video of him refusing!


Every ride, good or bad, teaches you something new.

He must feel and know how easily he can make you feel worried because from the post he was a punk during the canter section of your lesson and he had no reason to refuse and did because he knew he could get away with it. I didn't mention him being a turd by trying to roll while you were on him??

You can do it! It looks like you're a decent little rider so don't let him push you around and be firm with him. You need to correct this or it's going to get worst and he's going to continue doing more and more bad things with you and you don't want that.

Hehe... I guess he does know he can kinda take advantage of me. It took me completely by surprise when he refused because his ears were pricked and he had a nice springy trot and looked like he was going to jump it. I'm definitely going to need to be firmer with him. >.<
