The only good thing about chasing Nala around the pasture is that I finally got to see her gait...and WOW! The girl can move. As soon as she had finished "showing off" she just stopped dead in her tracks and let me walk up and put the halter on her. So...how many calories do you burn slogging through ankle deep muck trying to catch your horse? (she refused to "hide out" in the dry parts of the pasture) :)

I know, right? On the rare occasion that we have mud puddles in the pastures/pens here, I swear the horses know that you don't want to slog through the middle of them. It's like watching 2 kids chase each other around a table.

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: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

The whole process would have been a whole lot easier if it weren't for every other literally volunteering to be caught

I have been bitten (to the point of needing stitches), kicked multiple times (worst time I broke my hip) thrown, stepped on (I swear I've broken every toe) trampled, fallen on (broke three ribs and my nose in my most recent fall with a horse) struck (broken arm) and dumped. All of them were my fault in some way and I've always come back for more. I always tell people that shy of killing me, there is nothing that horses can do that will keep me away forever. The look at me like I'm joking but I'm convinced. Of course not all of my falls and mishaps have been bad, I'm actually pretty lucky (in my eyes) I also spend money on things my horse doesn't need (like a new pretty halter) when I need new shoes or pants. I have my priorities in line for what is important to me, and that is my horse!

When I fall off, even other riders are surprised at how fast I hop back on - but all I can think is, "I'm wasting so much time just sitting here on my butt while I could be riding!"
