Lesson mayhem - my mare is the best horse in the world :)
I just have to gush about how well behaved my mare was today. I take five lessons a week and some of them are group lessons, just to keep it interesting.
Well, today was total chaos. Horses were bucking, rearing, tanking off - you name it, they've done it. My mare was perfectly calm. She listened to my seat impeccably, especially when I was maneuvering her out of the way of a runaway horse which threw her rider. And that lasted for about 10 minutes, the horse would not be caught but kept going up to other horses to kick them.
It was a madhouse. Even the instructor managed to fall off when she tried to ride some sense into one of the naughty ones. That's when we just gave it up.
Anyhow, my mare is a star!
