This happens to me all the time. I know how bad it can be. When Roger first came to our barn, he was crazy. Had been abused and who knows what. Would buck like a complete maniac for 10 minutes straight, never tiring. And of course it became my problem. :P Hang in there, just remember you are a good rider obviously if your instructor thinks you can to it ;)

i like riding new horses... haha but when i was really little i rode an old ranch horse (before i got my own) but the ranch pony was at work right then so my aunt put me on a little white mare named barbie... i almost quit riding because she was so stubborn and 'mean'(as i called it when i was little) but now i really appreciate having to deal with bad mannered horses!

If there are no horses in heaven... im not going.

Juliyana, what's your problem? I came on here to vent a little bit, and you're all over me. Relax. Please.
Everyone else: Thanks for the support. Rainy's all better, so I'm happily working with her again! :)

I love getting the chance to ride new horses. When I was doing a working student position I rode tons of new horses. I had my horse, my pony and three other horses that were my regulars to ride. Then I had a bunch of randoms thrown in there. It's good to get experience and learn to be adjustable to different horses.

:)

Though I certainly prefer riding Cougar. There is just a connection I don't have with any other horse and after four years it just keeps getting stronger.

You shouldn't be expected to "perform at your normal level" on a different horse. Each horse is an individual case and should be ridden that way, so each time you ride a new horse for the first time it may take a little to get use to their "buttons" or lack there of hehe. These horses may be at different stages of their training or just have different abilities so there can't be a "normal".

If you don't feel comfortable and you are paying for these lessons make sure your voice is heard, it is your money therefore your time. But on the whole take what everyone else has said and learn from these experiences, the more experiences you give yourself the more you will learn.

Have fun with it and I hope you are back on your girl in no time, enjoying her manners hehe.
