Well today's ride sucked. like majorly. I got to ride a 26 year old arabian mare. I have never liked arabians, and to top it off she's 26!! It my opinion, by the time horses reach that age shouldnt they be retired? This mare would NOT MOVE. she was stubborn as hell. It took EVERYTHING i had to get her to trot. it wasnt pleasant at all. I could only manage to get her to canter a few strides before my legs would feel like they were going to fall off. =/ i hated it. children's horses should stay just that, a childrens horse for little kids to play around. I think my trainer felt kind of bad, so we ended the lesson with a short trail ride. lol. I hope I get to ride penny again next time, at least she would MOVE lol. On the flip side, i definitely got my exercise for the day trying to get her to move..lol.
