Re: Fwd: Re: [RC] TWH/lope/gallop - Chris Paus


I get a big chuckle out of people who tell us to do
this wieh Arabs... let em run til they get tired.
yeah, right! 

I knew that wouldn't work with Star when one day I
rode him 10 miles to the lake, at the lake rode round
and round in deeply cultivated field, rode up and down
and up and down a steep embankment, rode back home the
long way, and took a side trip in a neighbor's farm
field. At nearly the  end of all this riding, I let
Star have his head in the farm field. He ran so hard,
my eyes were streaming tears.... I had to steer him in
big circles to slow him down...

home.  I think the idea
was for her to learn it was ok to walk.   Round and
round that hay field
she went.  Once in awhile she'd slow to a fast trot
but quickly regained
her desire to run.  This went on for four hours
until finally she got
bored and they walked home.
