Finding the right moment

Finding the right moment

Postby FlorayG » Wed Jun 08, 2016 11:24 am

just a musing really...
...since I got Dut 9 weeks ago everyone has been asking when am I going to ride her blah blah and I just said when I'm ready and I expected that to be some time yet maybe not until September.
Yesterday it just felt right so I hopped on her bareback and she just looked round and sniffed my toe.
I always cringe when I hear about people who send a horse away for 2 weeks to be broken in. You do it when it's right, not in two weeks that you happen to have spare. Sometimes it takes only 30 minutes ( Dancing took about 30 minutes to break in) and sometimes it can take months.

The only problem I had was dismounting, I expected the ground to be a lot further away and when my feet hit the floor too soon the shockwave went right up to my jaw - she really is onny a dut.
