Amber basically called me as one of her own little daughters.
She wouldn't let the other horses come within ten feet of me unless I asked them to me. One day I was brushing her and Brisco and Golley came up to about two horse lengths away. Amber took off running after them, chasing them off. Then she walked back to me exactly how she was and went to sleep like nothing happened.
I was riding her (this happened a few times) and I was slipping off of her, or bouncing in the saddle too much, or just not doing something right. Amber would slow down or extend her trot so it wasn't so bouncy or would stop so I could get myself upright.
She never did this with anyone else that rode her - just me.
I think it might have to do with the relationship you have with your horse or something. I have been jumping over a tiny jump with brisco - I keep getting ready either too early or too late. He would just keep going along slowly or stop until I got upright and OK again.
Horses are truly amazing.
That is soo sweet I can't even. But I rarely ride this horse, maybe like a few times a month. I mean its great what he did and shows how strong hearted he is, but it bothers me because I fell like he was treating me like I didnt know everything, and I was just another bother that rode him, which I am riding him for the exact opposite reason lolol.
