A fly strip moving in the wind is no reason to
deposit my slave in a mud pile & drag her half across the pasture once she catches me again.
I will not buck the six month old child off just
because I'm feeling frisky. I am 31 years old and I'm supposed to act my age.
I will not go into a bucking frenzy causing my
human to break her collar bone ever again.
I will not kick at my human's leg when we are
cantering, causing myself to fall over on top of my human.
I will not leave when my rider falls off.
I will not spook and throw my rider when I see
that annoying runt of a miniature donkey in the next pasture.
I will not test my riders balance by taking the
bit and charging for the fence line and then executing a perfect 180 degree turn to head for the barn while she falls off
into the fence line.
I will not try to quietly sneak away as my human
I will not turn sharply while my rider is ducking
a branch, throwing her into the manure pile, then come back and snort in her face.
I will not wait until my human has just one foot
in the stirrup before I make one magnificent leap forward, just to see if it makes her fall.
I will try to be more consistent about when I
decide to try to get rid of my human when she is riding me.
Unloading my human before the designated spot
is rude, so I must no longer do this.
