Ahh cold weather. 20 degrees, a little snow on the ground, a stiff wind, and a lunatic where there used to be a mild mannered horse. I was out riding my horse in the snow today. He's been getting more curious and bold about going out alone as he ages, but still has his moments. He's normally a saint and basically doesn't have mean bone in his body. Today, more than a few times, he pulled that spook, rear, spin, bolt, buck crap that TB's are so good at. It wasn't anything big enough to put me on the ground, and he's fairly easy to bring back to neutral, but all the drama just seems so redundant!! Every freakin year when it gets cold, he turns into a nut! (insert big eye roll here) I guess it's not so much frustrating as it is somewhat entertaining at this point because I always know it's coming. Now if I can just keep my horse between me and the ground until about late March, I should be good to go. Anyone else having a little extra spice in their rides lately?
