I was riding Zum home from a ride yesterday and I rode by the barn. Huszar spooked and dashed out of the barn. This frightened Zum who galloped up the hill. I lost the reins for a second as this happened so quickly, but thankfully, I was able to stay in the saddle. At the top of the hill, I grabbed the left rein and turned Zum’s head left for a one-rein stop at a gallop. It worked! I let Zum stand quietly while the dust settled, literally. Then I walked him down the hill and turned him in left and right circles in the driveway. Around horses, things happen swiftly and I learned I need to be alert and prepared for anything.
