I rode Warrior Pony outside today, since the weather was lovely and the "footing" in the "outdoor" was relatively dry. At the end, I decided to see how she did with a little walk out in the hay field, and she was surprisingly calm. She tends to be a bit stupid about new things and since I am a giant weenie about riding out I am not exactly confidence-inspiring. I couldn't tell you why the hay field is different from the "outdoor," since the "outdoor" doesn't have a fence or anything, it's just closer to the barn, but mentally both the horses and I find it less intimidating than the fields.
She did nearly spin and bolt for the barn just after I took this, but I sat and made myself breathe and then she was willing to wait for me to decide we could turn and walk back. Good pony.
