He/She nickers and comes up
Stands and watches as you come over and catch him/her
Walks away and avoids you for a bit but then allows you to catch him/her
Runs away and can be difficult to catch at times
As you fill his/her bin she tries to shove her head in and push in
He/she waits until you give the all go then tucks into the tucker
Horse waits till you have put the feed in then begins to eat once you step away
Horse waits a bit impatiently with ears back but waits until you have stepped away
I sometimes need a long whip to encourage my horse to move and listen to commands
My horse often tries to ignore me or pays attention to other things rather than me, can sometimes take a bit of time to get on the same page.
My horse listens to my voice commands and is willing to work with me
My horse listen and responds rather well, but sometimes needs encouragement
My horse jumps toward me and i feel uncomfortable and yell and wave my arms "Get Off Me You Silly Thing! it was just a bird!"
Your horse jumps back or away from you and you but is rather startled, you feel a bit uncomfortable but are pleased he respected your space and you say "you silly boy/girl it was just a bird" and continue
Your horse jumps toward you in fright and you feel a bit startled yourself but stay confident and place your hand gently on him/her and let him/her know its ok in a gentle relaxed voice and continue walking
Your horse jumps back or away from you and you stay calm relaxed and continue walking and speak in a calm relaxed manner
Stay calm and relaxed wait for it to pass making sure you are prepared if your horse does shy or get frightened
Hold on really tight so you dont fall off in case he/she gets a fright. or ride as far away as you can!
Get off and hold your horse while it passes
Get off and get as far away as possible, i dont want to fall off or get stepped on.
Maybe im not asking correctly i will seek some advice
Keep working with him/her each day until you finally find the buttons!
Give up and try to teach him/her something else
He/she will get it eventually! he/she always does in the end!
Thats ok buddy we will do better next time "Keep Smiling"
Why didnt i place? i did better than some of the other riders? My horse must not be a bit off today...
My horse must be a bit off today... i wont bother riding in the other events, im happy to watch...
Oh well i had fun and we worked well together thats all that matters :)
No, we would be very different
Yes! i think we would act in a similar manner
Yes and no, we would be similar but have our own special personalities :)
Maybe, i couldnt really tell
Coz i love them and my friends love them
For competition and i love riding
Coz i love the rewards of caring for and training
The moment when you achieve something and those special moment i have with my horse
I have a lot to learn but im eager to learn!
I have a decent knowledge and tend to help others out, but still learning at the same time
I know plenty and have grown up with horses so no need to worry!
I have learnt everything i can and dont really need someone telling me how to ride, care for and treat my horse :)
