Funny refusal (must read)!
by Sarah (horseluver4evernever)
Okay, so me and my favorite school horse Timothy (that I love so much more then any other horse) were in a lesson with my trainer Michelle.
We were doing a course of 1 1/2 ft jumps. Don't get me wrong because Timothy loves jumping. He never refuses (I shouldn't say never because he does sometimes) especially small jumps like these ones.
So it was finally our turn to go and we started by picking up a trot and then a canter. We cantered the combination jumps and then to the vertical. I missed the jump because Timothy wanted to go one way and i wanted to go another way.
We came to the jump again. I had a good pace up to the jump. but timothy refused it. I gave him a reminder that we were still on course. It was just a small crop. The next time he refused it again but I slid down his neck because he had it down.
"Oh great," I thought, "he's going to bolt." But my favorite pony ever ever didn't bolt. I was sliding all the way down to his ears. And he is smart.
He put his head up for me. I slid up his neck and when I felt the saddle behind me I jumped back in! I don't think he meant to try and throw me. Just saying losing my reins. And more of a release. That pony teaches me things all the time!
I LOVE YOU TIMOTHY!!!!!!!!! Please comment hope you enjoyed!!!!
