ya know what. Im really getting tired of your replies. You're constantly calling me irresponsible and other names. That's not acceptable. Maybe you should take a look at the forum rules again. Just because you don't agree with somene doesnt mean you need to call them names and a bad horseman.
She asked for basic tips, I gave them. I TOLD her about sawing the bit and such but that you NEED to sit behind a horse and learn how to use it. If you're going to sit around and tell every person that asks for any advice on here to go get a trainer, that's not going to help anyone. Some people just can't afford that. Do you think everyone in the world had an instructor to learn from? Not really. And truthfully just because someone is an "instructor" doesnt mean theyre going to know it all and be perfect. There are many "vets" out there that I wouldnt let lay a hand on my horse because they really know nothing.
