So yesterday, I thought I could ride my extremely good/manically bad horse for 3 hours out into an area where he was scared, fight him all the way home and then ride my sweet, cooperative/ somewhat sensitive horse, even though my legs were already rubber. I fell off of him when he sunk into mushy ground and bounded forward. He ran a few yards, then turned around and looked at me, confused. I walked him around in the scary footing and then rode him back. Only pride was hurt and horse gained confidence in the end, but need to save a little strength for the fresh horse next time.
