    Going down a steep hill w/a rider can be scary for a "greneer" horse. They do have to get their balance & trust the balance of the rider. Patience is a good thing. But cross country riding is SO fun!

    Sorry about the spelling mistake, my fingers start flying & my eyes miss some typos until it's too late-gotta practice that patience-lol.

    I think that being "greener" might be part of the issue with my horse. I think he has been ridden a lot less than I had originally been told when I bought him. Also, he was in a confined area for about 3 years, prior to coming to the ranch I board at. This may be his first experiences with going all over the wilderness. If so, it makes sense that he balks about it.

    I must admit I have been late a few time when meeting my cousin to ride. And when I first started trail riding with others, I underestimated the time it would take to get everything together at the barn!! I have never really held anyone up though.

    When I first got Biscuit I had trouble catching him in his paddock - I was late a couple of times - but I am talking at the most 20 minutes. She has had the same problem before too. I always called her but I am not a fan of being late myself. I like to be on time.

    I am much quicker now at making sure everything gets in the trailer that I need. (I have left stuff I needed before ) I am still a little slower at tacking up because The Biscuit gets a little skittish if I go to fast. As he was harshly treated in his former life - I go a little slower!!! I just start a little earlier if I am trailering by myself. But in a contest of who tacks up fastest - it will not be me.

    I give myself a lot of time because I have to turn him out/let him roll for a few minutes, groom him (which takes forever as my horse is part wooly mammoth), and then of course tack up. Then, there is the inevitable trip to the restroom before we are only left with a bush as an option. I hate holding people up, so I tell them I want to ride about 45 minutes after I plan on being up there.
