For those of you who have horses who tend to start out trail rides at new locations a bit hot and jiggy, what do YOU do? Do you make your horse walk slow until he calms down or do you canter and let him get it out of his system? My TB is always a little goofy for the first 5 minutes of new trail rides. By the end of the ride, we're cantering along on the buckle. It's just that first few minutes that he's just a jiggy ball of energy. I was just curious as to what you guys do in that case. I stay slow until he starts to relax, but would love to hear from the run them out crowd to see how that works.
