Sassy first ever ATTEMPT at poles

WE don't have a place to pratice at home and for my bday yesterday my son decided to take MY mare to a show and put her threw a pattern for me ...

She has never been in a areana like this one at a show nor has she EVER seen pole LOL

Watch her look at the first pole when he ask her to turn it

good job, but do you have to kick her like that? Just squeeze, LOL or you'll end up with a 'dead-sided' horse!

agree. Don't have him kick the horse that much. I don't think he ever stopped kicking her. Poor horse :(

NOBODY normally rides my personal horse exccept myself and MY trainer... his horse is hurt and he has been LEARNING to ride her ... she will ride completely off of my leg and if you look he is flat footing her not healing thankfully he is more or less BUMPING her ... which is why it is so funny to watch and teach him on her because she is a GOOD horse for tolerating HIS mistakes ... she is a very very quiet and laid back horse and POLES are not ever going to be her thing ...

I think that he did good. I have to do that to my horse or she will walk slower than a turtle. I am not kicking her I am just bumping her. So I know where her son is coming from.

Horses are like potoato chips.... You can't have just one.
