Starting Again - I'm Back :D
Most of you probably don't remember me because I didn't really post much, and when I did it was about my dilemma on selling my horse. Anyway, for those of you who decided to read this, I rode for seven + years before selling my horse. I was too busy, too tired, etc. In reality, he was a little too nuts for me. A green-broke horse and no time does not equal positive results.
However, as my best friend lives at the farm I rode at, I'm there a lot. And I've been roped in to joining their drill team for the past month, so I'm riding more than I thought I would be. In this time I have realized that I can't give riding up. I have practice today and I am shaking with excitement because I just love riding.
One of the boarders has a green-broke four or five year old that I am in love with. She's kind of afraid of everything, and no one rides her much. My friend is asking her owner if I can start exercising her soon. Because I messed up royally with my green horse (well, I didn't really as everyone says, but it was a person failure for me), what's the best way to start the mare, if it ends up happening? I was figuring a lot of groundwork and then the basics. She knows them, and she's a pleasure to ride, but she's so spooky, haha.
Thoughts? Sorry this was crazy long.
*haha, I read this and it makes me sound like I don't know what I'm doing. I think I'm just looking for like, confidence or something? Gah, I ramble.
