How shovelling your horse's face full of food for the last 5 months can save yo ass
So basically last time I rode I misplaced my gloves somewhere. I have soft ass skin which tears easily, especially in the cold (srsly you should see the paper cuts i get tidying cardboard in the cool room at work).
So anyway, lunging the pon this morning in the cold ass weather with no gloves, waiting for mumma to arrive with my show gloves from home.
Accidentally drop the fuckin lunge rein while he’s trotting around me cos i’m holding it so softly
Pony goes what the fuck
He starts passaging off in a panic feat. side reins
Lucky he has the world’s sweetest ass temeprament, the poor baby was so confused. Seriously he would trot to the end of the arena and go !! Not allowed to leave !! And turn around and keep trotting in the aren despite the tyres being really not high at all lol
Anyway so after maybe a minute (felt longer but it was pretty quick) of my ‘woaaaah it’s okay’ voice not really working and him still trotting around I had a bright idea
And I literally just grabbed some treats out of my pocket really obviously and held them out to him and the little cutie just comes to a dead stop straight away and arches his neck like I’ve taught him to to take food and lets me catch him and is just such a precious creature
I luff him
So anyway that is how i managed to avoid a major fuck up today bc my pony has the best temperament and loves food more than anything lmfao
