Re: [RC] Speed Control - Sullivan

Speed Control??? . Now we have a relatively new 15.3 hand Arab (8 years old)
with a lovable disposition, but speed control eludes me and for sure him.
For a while we have a controlled trot, but then the horse, feeling good,
starts picking up speed. To much for my comfort and it's a battle trying to
hold him back.
Anyway, tips would be appreciated. I've been around our sport since 1981 and
love it dearly, but it's scary not to be in reasonable control. This horse
has in my opinion great potential, but I want to live to enjoy it.
*I have a great idea. Trade him to me for a 6 year old, 15.3 hand Anglo
Arab bay roan mare. Her speed control issue is that she gradually slows
down....it's too much effort to keep her going. She has never bucked,
reared and is not real spooky. Sound, and done 2 LD rides, lots of horse
camping and carried kids. She is a lovely trail horse but I am tired of
plugging along. Will be glad to trade for speed-freak maniac big Arab or
