Easy: For an average horse, how many strides will he/she do in a simple, normal line of 2 verticals?
What's a stride???? And a line???
Medium: Lets say you have a barn stormer. You try never letting her see the barn, shut the gate, take a different way to the arena, everthing! What is a reasonable and efficient way to at least lessen the anxiety of wanting to go to the barn?
Nothing it listed worked? You're in trouble. Send it to a western trail rehability place. I'm sure they wouldn't mind.
Shutting the gate is good, but not letting them see the barn is worse. They're anxiety level will go up and they'll be looking even harder for the barn. Let them see the barn, but stay a good 6 feet off the rail, and always keep them straight and direct them forward, never letting them go an inch off where you say to.
Yank on the reins and don't let them go near the barn! Make them sleep in the ring!
Don't shut the gate. Relax, and don't look at the barn. Make sure you direct them in the forward direction, and stay calm and collected. Prettty soon, if you practice a lot, your horse will not barn storm as much, if at all!
Keep your horse in the middle of the ring, facing the opposite direction from the barn. If the horse tenses and tries to look back, keep their head straight and don't let them go back to the barn.
First of all, if you let them go wherever they want after a lesson, it's your fault. You will have to always keep them going forward and moving aafter a lesson. That's the main cause for 80% of barn stormers.
Why do you have a horse that is a barn stormer?
Don't let them NEAR that barn! Shut the gate and work them until they stop barn storming!!
Barn storming is a good thing. If you get lost, the horse can find its way home!!
Medium: Your horse is heading for a line of two 2'3" verticals. They are easy for your horse, but you can just feel that something isn't right. Now you get it! He;s straying away from the jump! If you don't act quick, he could surprise you or do a drive-by. What do you think you should do?
Let him drive-by. If you can tell that you really aren't going to make it, then why risk it?
Keep him/her straight. Don't let him/her stray off, but keep a firm hold of the reins and sit deep in the saddle. Your horse can take it, even though you can feel something is wrong...
You trust your horse. He is probably straying off because I may not be paying enough attention. You sit deep in the saddle, keep a firm hold of the reins, but relax a little. If you trust him, he will trust you. Besides, it's only 2'3"!
Circle. If you fel your horse straying off, then maybe something IS wrong. Circling will help you notice if his confidence needs a boost or he is physically injured. I mean, he's done 3'6" for crying out loud. Something has to be wrong.
Circle and come to a stop. Ask your trainer to check and see if there's anything in the trees surrounding the arena that may be spooking him. Pet him and tell him it's OK.
Go with the flow. He might drive-by or jump. I'm all for risks, let's do it!
Freeze up and fall off. It's better than being humiliated by a drive-by or falling off head-first by a surprising, poppy jump. You get ready for the worst...
Get all whiney and stop right in front of the jump. Yell at your trainer and ask why your ah-mazing horse is acting up! It's not fair!
Fall off on purpose and crawl to the barn. Make a scene, you love the drama.
Leg him and keep a deep seat and firm hold. Don't you DARE let him drie-by! Don't even let him stop!
Medium: Oh. No. It's Finals. The REAL. DEAL. You are going into the ring for your first course. It's big and scary in there. Your horse feels your nervousness. You try to relax, but are unable to. What can you do? Answer truthfully on what you would do in reality. Please say what you would be able to do, not what you would want to do.
Sigh. Take a big, deep breath and hold it for 5 seconds. Exhale and do again until calm. Walk into the ring with no confidence but at least you're not freaking out.
Okay. This is your BIG moment. Your time to shine. You take a lungful of air, and exhale. You try to walk in with confidence, but by the second jump, you get scared and your eq lowers considerably. By the end of the class, you are feeling a little better. Good job at trying.
You never freak out. Not once. So why answer the question?
Freeze up. Go blank. Black out possibly.
Finals? I NEVER get to Finals so how can I answer this question? My horse isn't fancy enough and I'm still a green rider. I'm also proud of that.
Walk in, more or less hypnotic under the spell of the scariness of the ring and the evil competiton glares.
Breathe. Eyes on the prize. My time. Narrow my eyes, feel my horse and GO FOR IT!!!!
Um, I'm just gonna walk out for a sec...
Easy: If a horse has white all around its legs up to its knees, what is it called?
a stripey horsey!!!!
well, it would have to be a WHITE HORSE!!!! DUH!!!
I have no idea
I like pie
It would either be a white horse, or a colorblind person's view....
