Well just thought I'd let you know the amusing story of my horse arriving well he was MEANT to ARRIVE at 7:30. But then they had problems and he didn't arrive untill 10:00 so what did I do untill ten?
Well Chinga*my horse* has a paddock buddy punkin, who is a pony with big adittude problems. So his owner asked me if I would lunge him for her. I decided whats the worst that can happen?The two of us walked out to the paddock and put him on a lunge line...didn't want to do it and I didn't have my lunge whip with me so we gave up on that. Then we decided to run him over some small jumps with us running beside him. Big mistake! He was good at it but after a while he got stick he went into a bucking fit pulling his owner so she let go I grabbed him and he pulled me I landed on the ground.
When Chinga arrived we took them riding together Punkin wouldn't move. So she asked me to get on him....he bucked and bucked and bucked and then my saddle slipped and I fell off! Then I got back on Chinga canted straight down the paddock, was fun untill I asked him to walk he walked staight into a tree and now has a sore on his head.
Then Chinga and Punkin decided that they weren't going to be friends both of them reared up but didn't have contact....luckly.
Then 10 mins later we left drove past and now they are best buddies and are running round the paddock together and being happy.
