Re: [RC] Fit mare - heidi

I finally seem to have a horse with energy and stamina. I rode open this
 past w/e at a NATRC ride. I only ride safety, which I learned can be a
curse and a blessing. I ride novice safety all the time, and my mare
seems  to have a great brain for that, but the added speed and
excitement of the  open pace was a little much for her.  She bucked and
longed and just  generally "played" all w/e.  A friend of mine laughed a
bit and said I  would adjust to having such a fit horse. I told her I
didn't want to  adjust. I wanted the mare to "get over it" She never did
anything  malicious, but man, was she ever feisty.  What to do to get
this new  behavior under control?

Maybe do a 100-miler?  ;-)
