[RC] [Guest] Impatient Horse Trailering - Ridecamp Moderator

Micki turney Horseraser@xxxxxxxxxxxxx
When I first started in endurance there were ten ladies that were my mentors. The first thing they handed me was a stack of EN. After I finished with the magazines, the girls took me on a ride-in a horse trailer! The first go around the city was nice-I wasn't too traumatized... The girls stopped the truck and said to brace myself as this is how the average driver pulls his horse. WHAT AN EYE OPENING EXPERIENCE! I suggest all of us do this once and you will understand what the horse has to do to balance that long body and four legs. As far as your horse Jen, he sounds alot like Scotchtape as I noticed that you put "Psycho horse" as his name. LOL my rides with him were white knuckle (and you now I LOVED every minute of it). I bought him as a four year old and we "swayved" going to the left and right of the trail for quite awhile, he spooked at everything. I really think its a personality thing, as horses get impatient just like some people do. I used to pull over and stop the trailer and have a talk with Scotchtape, but to no avail. I hope your horse is a dream to ride!
