Riding Reilly (4 year old stallion) around his paddock in my dressage saddle and nice long stirrups (my trainer would be pleased with me) and decided to mix things up a little and let him pop down the wee bank into the gully. Said bank is all of about 60cm and I assumed that he would just pop down into it but no, not Reilly! He decided that clearly he was facing the Burghley bank and fair leapt down at which point I threw away the reins, saw my life flash before my eyes and then grabbed what little mane I could find (I cut it all off yday) as he proceeded to ping up the 1m+ bank on the other side!!!

The good news is that I stayed on and regained complete control within a few strides but the bad news is that I now need new jods [:0] and think my xc riding days are over :rolleyes: [:I]

The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing,and then they marry him.
