Yes, that is what I thought. I saddled up my mare Sunday to take a nice long ride in the sun on such a beautiful day but that dang mare had other plans.
Her thoughts apparently included me NOT going for a ride. So, what started as a great idea to ride turned in to an 1 1/2 hour lesson for her.
Naturally Dakota had to get in on the action.
I even changed headstalls thinking she had too much bit. I was using Dakota's bridle and her mouth is softer but even that didn't work.
She tested me for sure but I stuck with it and finally got her to stop moving in order to mount her. I never did go for a ride though because it was getting late and I was getting tired. But at least she knows now that when I say stand still I mean it!
