Okay, COTH, I need some suggestions, and even though it's embarrassing as heck, I'm going to throw this out there. adult topic alert!!
I have put my youngest OTTB into light work after a layoff - I got him in August,had loads of problems with a recurring abscess, etc. Now that the weather is improving, I'm getting him going a bit.
He likes this....a lot.
At first he started dropping a little if I was doing ground work with him....no biggie.
Then, he started doing it after I dismounted and ran up my irons to walk him back to the barn.
Now? Um.....last week near the end of my ride, he exposed himself. Fully. Today? He scaled it up, and while riding at the walk, got very....vigorous. The videos have now earned him the nickname Porn Star.
WTF do I do here? This is soooo funny, but so embarrassing! I can't tell what he's doing because he merrily carries on at the walk and even the jog. If I ever get to the point of taking him to local shows, I think that I might get the gate before the class even starts!!
In daily life he is a well behaved gelding, never acts studdish or as if he is anything but a nice sweet boy. No flehmening, nothing. Under tack? Oh dear.
I want to know if anybody else has had this problem, just in case there is a physiological reason for it.....or is he just really, REALLY happy?
