I love the attitudes of TB's. One minute they are scared out of their minds and the next...hey why are you lying on the ground?

Like my post if you love your TB AND his/her antics!

omg I had soooo much fun yesterday on Miss Cheyenne!! I was practicing for the gymkhana next sunday (which I'm buzzing for!!!) and I suck at pole bending so I decided, "okay, well since I'm no longer allowed in novice I'd better start practicing since I'm up againsed people who I'm never gonna beat, I wanna make sure I tried" haha so I cantered Cheyenne to the end pole and when I turned around it to weave back, she started bucking and completely flipping out! And I'm like 'you brat, what the heck are you doing??' cuz she never does that. And so I hit her a couple times and make her do it again and like the last time she bucks a bunch of times. And so I'm like alright, this is just stupid, what's your problem? And so I decided to just take her for a gallop because she had been fed oats for a while so she might just need to get out her energy.

So I gallop her in a bunch of circles around the arena until she slows down (meanwhile my friend, who rides a VERY pokey horse, she thinks she can go fast on her pokey horse, she was looking at me in awe at how fast my horse can go lol) to a canter because she's tired so I let her slow down and I bring her back to a walk and walk her a while to let her breath.

Next I decide to do the poles again. So I just trot her to the end pole this time (meanwhile she's fighting me trying to run) and turn her and she's trying to go faster but I hold her to a trot and we do the pattern fine and I let her canter home. But when I try cantering up to the poles she starts flipping out. It wasn't bucking, but she WAS going nuts.

Then her owner (my instructor) comes out and I tell her that Cheyenne's bucking whenever I go around the last pole. She asks me to try with her watching because maybe her back's out a little or something. So I canter her to the last pole and just as I'm turning it, I realize 'this horse wants to run.' and that's why she was going nuts, I was holding her back. So I still hold her back but I give her a LITTLE rein and we go faster and stuff and blah blah blah and I come back and I just tell her owner "She wants to run. That's the thing isn't it?"
She's like, "Yep, that's the thing." I start laughing like 'wow I'm so stupid.' And anyway so my instrucor tells me to go again and keep my hands up this time because my hands were way low and she was taking advantage of me. So I go again and it was the funnest thing I'd done this year! Wait, it's just the beginning of the year...still...in a long time anyway haha

All I had to do was shorten my reins majourly, lift up my hands, use my outside leg and let her go! It was incredible, I've never done poles that fast before!! And the amazing thing, apparently I put the poles too close together so it would be even easier during the real gymkhana!!!

AAHHH I'm SOOO excited!!!!!!! And one of the best parts: I didn't fall the whole time!! lol I once fell off when I was galloping home and I flew into a huge metal fence at a gymkhana so I've been VERY nervous to gallop for the last bunch of months...But i didn't fall at all yesterday so that's a huge reliever for me especially since our arena at home is WAY smaller than the arena at the show grounds so it's even less likely that I'll fall there.

Well now I'm just rambling! See ya round!

Oh Cowgirl Up
