That gelding failed his vet check unfortunately :(
I am a particularly nervous rider.
Trust me when I say I would not have got on him if I didn't feel safe enough, let alone t/c him ;D
His paces, naturally, need work. He's a 3 yo with the very basics, but something I have a good outline to work with. His paces are nice, and I agree sky, with work and time his paces will impove ten fold.
The mare was nice, but what I noticed in the video was true to form- she had learnt to dictate the speed and any attempt to bring her back was futile unless you used your voice, she got herself in to a "mode" where she got faster and wouldn't back down from it.
Stallions aren't so much an issue, we have 4 at our yard anywho ;)
My trainer gave me a number a few weeks back to call with three horses, two of which where older stallions. She went mad because I said no as they still had their.. manly parts ROFL. So long as the horse is well mannered and respects boundries then she doesn't mind whether its stallion, gelding,mare, donkey,mule...dog LOL
