I wish I could board! I wish we had people I could ride with! (Lol, I want Buddy back! He'd go anywhere, anytime, no questions asked, no nervous feelings-I just bet he'd help Tango-unfortunately, he's not at our place anymore.) I'm going to ask my instructor, and I was really thinking about getting a summer job at my dad's trainer friend's barn so I could learn and gain experience and all that stuff-and of course, have someone horsey to ask for help whenever I need it. I've started just by walking off the property about 15 metres, then turning around, increasing the margin daily, so that she'd learn it's not scary away and that we always come back. Am I making too big a deal out of it? I mean, right now it's not exactly possible to just gun her out there for a big trail ride without major excitement and freaking out.
