Re: [RC] rider fear - Lynne Glazer

Naw, both my Arabs' 4th gait is backing--especially at the start of a ride when not allowed forward.

whoever says backing isn't a natural gait hasn't seen Ember back up 50 feet straight when it's HER idea

Of course horses spook just for fun and to see if the rider is awake and aware.? I have had some legit spooks.? One was the horse eating logging machine, and the other were the surprise horses coming around the corner at us.? At least my mare didn't spook at the semi that greeted us on a 2 track.? She leaped off the trail instead and took me with her.? All horses spook if something scares them.? It behooves the rider to be aware of his/her surroundings, and to be a fairly decent rider.? And remember, an arab's fourth gait is the spook!? Jeanie
