So I have been ring my friend's horse T.C. (AKA TomCat) lately because they don't have the time and he's out on ALOT of weight...he needs to lose about 150-200lbs the vet said or he was at HUGE risk for laminitis :/ But he is so much fun....he's a 12yr old QH he has reining blood in him and has had some reining training
First things first-he has an ...interesting personality lol....he loves to test and give his riders a hard time(which is cool because I like a challenge) so he bucks a lot and theyre not really get off my back bucks more like "hmm let's see what she does if I do this"
Keep in mind the bucking is basically everyday TC....they've had EVERYTHING checkd on this horse health wise and physically and nothing has come up wrong the vet said that's just his personality and boy does he have personality lol...he's a real sweetie though.
This first event he was being challenging--he tried to run through the gate (which we are not allowed to do) so I had to spin him to stop him and line him back up(you'll see him buck) Then he took off at the pattern and instead of turning when he needed too he shot forward but I got him back in and we finished but he bucks LOL. (Don't mind my friend's narrating lol)
So this next event is poles (for some reason he never bucks during poles and barrels...I think he likes those evets
) he did awesome and we ended up getting a pretty good time. (My shirt got stuck on the horn weaving down hense me sitting weird it was fine going back up)
This last one is barrels...his first turn is wide but that was my fault I checked him waaaay late as you can see lol. HIs second and third turns were really nice though. We ended up getting a 23.1 even with the wide turn and where I ride the winning runs are normally between 19 and 21 so I think we did pretty good.
(Also don't mind my friends comentary and singing lol)
