Dancer had this problem, I don't have him anymore but if the problem comes up again I want to know what I can do to fix it. For those of you who ride, when you run does your horse normally try to get its head and go faster? Or does he just do what you tell him to do? I've only ridden one horse, and that was Dancer. So I'm used to keeping the reins tought so he wouldn't run away with me. Do you all have to do that while running? I mean a majority of you. I need reasons NOT to be afraid of riding, a horse trying to run away with me is a big reason for me to be afraid. I'm not a good rider, I want to know what I might be getting myself into by getting another horse.
