New to the forum

I have been reading and lurking around for awhile Decided to introduce myself I have seven horses three which are mine four I have given my youngest daughter who is 25 Helps on the feed bill I still consider them all ours. We enjoy trail riding and a occasional horse show. We have always broke are own horses But because of my age and daughter being busy we have sent the last two to a trainer. One comes back in a week and i find myself being nervous about riding him. Mind you I have rode since I was seven and do not understand why I am having this fear. Anyways a little information about me. Looking forward to getting to know all of you

Hi & Welcome
I think the reason you may be having reservations about riding your freshly trained horse is we, (as we get older) realise we are not "bullet-proof" and don't bounce like we used to at least that is what I am finding as I become a "select" rider. The ground also seems a lot harder, and come to think of it, it's a lot further down too.
Just take your time with him/her, if your trainer did a good job it should not be a problem.
Good luck and be sure to share pictures!

Howdy and welcome to the forum .

I don't know how much you have worked with the trainer during the time your horse has been there, but whenever I send a horse home, I always get on first to show the owner how they ride/handle, then I offer the owner a chance to get on with me there in case they have any questions about how to ride or cue the horse. Since my main customer lives a distance away from me where they cannot come and participate in the training, I have found that doing that helps to alleviate some of their nerves about getting on a horse they've never ridden before.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Thanks everyone. Yes my trainer showed me at two weeks how he was doing. And he is doing great. I have left him for sixty days which will be this Monday. And I for sure will ride him at her place. I love how she is doing the training. The problem is for the first three weeks he would buck every fourth day when he took his first step and he bucks hard. But then would be fine and walk trot and canter no problems. So I think that is what's in my head. I get over that first step I should be fine. I will post pictures soon I spend most my time on my iPad and have to figure out how to load them from here.

Thanks for the warm welcome
