Re: [RC] Building A Base - David & Maggie

I find that letting a younger or inexperienced horse run free to follow
I ride is a great way to get started on the base.

I agree, to an extent. First, make sure everyone gets along, no one is in
season, and no one is in a mood to kick up their heels.

I got kicked just below the knee by a three-year-old filly while riding my
old gelding. She was 'in' and he was 'talking' to her. She trotted up to
him, sniffed noses, squealed, wheeled and kicked me.

I was on crutches for a month.

Maggie Pritchard--still have a hoof-shaped dent
Ol' Bubba--I was just being polite
Kehleyr--SOLD!!! (to a wonderful home that ISN'T MINE!!)
