Do you know what this is?

Well obviously you don't because you can't see it from there

It is me smiling a HUGE smile because today I got to ride a reining horse. Get this, the coward who hasn't loped in...errr......well I really can't remember when I last loped, jumped up on a mare I have never met before, walked her a little, then trotted, then set off on lope circles slow and small, and fast and large!

Then we did some stops, including one where she gave me a little slide, then some roll backs, then

DA DAH.

We spun, considering that I have never done it before I was so pleased, and she was so honest and tried her heart out. I have her kind of turning, then we hit it right and she spins OMG, what a feeling.

Then we tried a few more, and I had one where we were REALLY spinning, she was flat and low her mane was standing out in the breeze, and the reins ends were more horizontal than vertical.

It was a blast from start to finish!

How awesome!!

Funny coincidence: Max and I joined a friend at a reining clinic yesterday! We were attempting everything you described, laughing at outselves and providing good-natured entertainment. We did acheive lightness and collection, though our circles resemble hotdog buns.

I wish I could "like" posts from my phone (tried going full site and doing it, but it just refuses to)!

Sounds like you had a great time!!

I'm so jealous! The trainer at the barn does reiners, and the BO has A gunner stud that's making all sorts of athletic gunner grandbabies. Maybe soon I can have an experience like yours! Until then, have a gunner baby :)

If I am not mistaken that's a good cross, I bet she's a dandy!
