Learning from Our Mistakes

25/09/2017 by Jill Griffiths

There was a lot going on around the vet ring and Dante didn’t like any of it. He’d had enough. He wanted to be left alone. I’ve learnt his default when it all gets too much for him is to become pushy and, by the time we were at the vet ring after our second official endurance training ride, Dante had well and truly had enough. In his defence, he was stressed, tired and hungry. He’d just been ridden 20 kilometres - his longest ever ride. He wanted to be with his brother, Cruiser, who was in the yard.
