Back in the Saddle
Wow, I haven't been on here in a long time...
Anyhoo, after having my baby I just got back in the saddle yesterday
on my black qh "Midnight". She hadn't rode more than a year and
she is a little high strung, but she did so good yesterday, I was so
happy! She even did so good, my 11 year old brother rode her by himself
and we led the little kids around on her. Now mind you, the last time my
husband decided to saddle up this mare she played rodeo with him and
acted a fool! I think one of the reasons she acts up is because she can
hear the other mares calling her and she wants to go back into
the field with them, but we can't do nothing about that seeing we
really have no other place to ride until we haul her to the riding arena.
Since this horse hasn't rode in more than a year, does anyone have
any suggestions what kind of work in the saddle or ground work I
should be doing with her? I plan on turning her into an event horse
(barrel,speed, poles) because she neck reins so easily.
It's been awhile, but I'm back & back in the saddle!
