  • Sometimes they remind you of their power!

    Went out to the stable today to play with my horse. My back is acting up, so decided to do ground work. I lunged him in sidereins and did some groundwork on yielding to the "leg".

    Then I decided, since it was a nice cool day after a heat wave, to untack and let him loose to play in the indoor. After rolling, he popped up and took off bucking and playing. He had a great time flagging his tail, trotting big and doing his version of airs above the ground.

    Every time I do this with a frisky horse I am reminded of what one could do if he chose and how grateful I am that
    he generally uses his acrobatics for good!

    Some pasture antics make me wonder why we even consider riding them

      We are lucky to even sit on their backs.

        Early in our marriage my non-horsey husband asked me, "When you pull on the leash (sic), why does he follow you?"
        He has come a long way, acquiring a great deal of horse lore since, but you know--sometimes it is still not a bad question.

          So why do the same people let their 35 pound dog pull them all over the place ?

            IKR - my horses are incredibly well mannered but the dogs I've had for many years are incorrigible.

              The antics of my young guy on the lunge today made me wonder why I sit on his back. But he did follow me all around the arena after some free play before being lunged, circles, meandering and everything. But wow...
