Re: [RC] Rolling at rides - Kristene Smuts

Last year at one particular ride, when I went to the vet check, I had a hard 
time keeping Ibn from rolling.  We have the limited time vet check - 20 mins 
after arrival you have to report with a clean horse.  So, I had to walk Ibn 
fairly briskly to the check to make sure he doesn't roll.  After the vet did 
his check and I had to trot out, I felt the lead rope getting heavier and 
heavier and couldn't understand why people were laughing.  When I looked back, 
Ibn was virtually running on his knees with his neck and head stretched out - 
he was going to have that roll, come hell or high water!  When I saw the vet 
laughing as well, I let Ibn roll and then just trotted him properly - dust 
billowing off him.
