I went on a trail ride yesterday near the lake and the trail was all grown up. Thorn bushes EVERYWHERE! Me and this guy David were not going to give up so easy. He has a BIG draft horse who were going to try to clear the path but the draft thought we were idiots. So, I told them (people that were on the trail with me) to move out of the way. I took Barney 20 feet back and galloped him straight through it. Then we got to the creek area and we have to cross it to get the place we were going. I think that was the highlight because Barney decided, without my help, he was going to go swimming. So I let him and even though he would have gone further I wasnt going to let him swim me out to the freezeing lake. So after that we got to were we where going. (I think I was the only one to stay on the horse for the whole time.)
When we got to the sand pitts the chick who was riding with us said her back was hurting to she jumped off her mustang mare. She streched for a bit then let go of the rein to the mare and told it........let me repeat this TOLD THE HORSE.....to follow us. That mare took three steps forward and and the first thing that came to my mind was "Oh crap. :roll:" that's when she tore out of there. I tore after her. Up and down hills, in and out of the creek. Barney is faster then that mare, but the problem was thoughs paths on the trail. I couldnt get beside that horse to grab the rein nor could I get in front of her. Well I mean I could but I would be puting Barney and I at risk if I did that on thoughs little paths.
We got to theses bushes were Of course a 14.1 hand horse can get by and but a 15.3 horse couldnt not metion I was on his back. That's when I lost her.
We spent 3 hours looking for that horse, while that lady was blaming me because her horse is a "racing horse". Yeah right!
The BO called and told me the Soddy Daisy Police found her. I was scratched up, cut up, and I lost my favorite hat. I was so mad!!
All I could say is "Why? Realy! Why? Are you that stupid!" that's when I took off on Barney and Let David yell at her.
That had to be one of the worst rides I ever had. Oh let me add this, the lady is 42!!! She should no better! I am only 19 so I didnt (even though I could have) want to scream and yell because then I would have gotten realy mad and jumped of the horse to hit her but violence is never the answer. So I let David yell.
I would just like to say this......STUPID STUPID STUPID!!!
