View Full Version : Why did she??
14th June 2011, 08:50 AM
The stables I ride at got a new horse about a month ago her name is Spring. I have ridden her twice now and on the second time, half way through the lesson I put my stirrups up for jumping. When I was doing this Spring bent her head round almost as if looking at me, then she did it the other side and repeated it a few times. Im just wondering why did she do this?

She might also have been taught to flex her neck at the end of a lesson.
So when you stopped to put up your stirrups she may have thought it was the end of her work and time to flex.
I do this when we've finished working and after a while the horse knows the routine and does it by themselves!
Sounds a cutey!

I loaned an appaloosa mare for a week near xmas and once when we were just standing there she stood there nudging my feet, each one in turn.

Aww she sounds cute, could be that she is being nosy, mine do it alot, or it could be that she has been taught to do it.
