Is there any way I can get her really to understand when I want her to be the burly logging horse, the pleasure driver, and the calm cool and collected mount? Does anyone have horses that are truly all around? (Mainly logging/riding). I really want her to be a trail horse, but the seller with my father was having a working horse. Most of the work she would do is getting cedar posts to make fences for the horse pasture. These posts are not that heavy. I can carry them most of the time, and at least drag them.
Right now she is 4 years old, and I do not plan on driving her with any weight untill at least 5 or 6. Before anything I want her to be broke to ride, and untill then I won't worry too much.
