Ok I went for another ride today although it was only short. It was meant to be a test ride, apache's first ride out alone since he has come back home.
It started off with him trying to turn back for ages, then I nearly fell off when he spooked. It was going quite good for awhile until we got within a couple hundred metres of home where he decided he just had to get back to sammy. Due to being so worried about sammy he kept tripping in the long grass which kept ripping the reins out of my hands with force. This lead to him taking off and tripping again which made me fall off. I was quite pissed because he took running off home beside the road.
I didn't get back on after I caught him because I was really angry and didn't want to take it out on him. So my ride ended rather badly and I have been encouraging myself to do this since he got back
Anyway I rode 1.86 miles on Apache today. Sammy: 3.85m Apache:1.86m
Now a picture before our ride. (I didn't realise until after the picture that the saddle had slid back for some reason.) IMAG0071.jpg
