Wondering if I committed a massive faux pas?
Went xc schooling today and I usually just take a handwalk around the field before I tack up. Typically there is no one there so I guess no one noticed or didn’t care. There was one rider out there today so I went to the opposite end of the field and walked the perimeter. Horse was being perfect, just sauntering around grabbing a couple bites of grass (aka not making a scene). So I walked over to where the horse/trainer were to just say good morning. And got pretty sternly told handwalking was not allowed. Which is tottaly fine! But just wondering if this is something I should have known? Or unique to this facility?
Luckily my mare was an angel! So maybe we are past the need for handwalking!
