    Talking really amazed new lad is true gent

    Ok I have been in the outer herbrides for 6 years and have now got a 2nd horse, I've known him for 5 years and broken him for some one esle. I have him at livery now as he broke his owners arm.
    I was told I couldn't do anything esle but walk in ridden work. I was told he would buck and throw me, He won't school, He won't work on the beach and to be careful when heading home as he takes his riders off each time, 4 riders have now been injuried by him.
    I love him.
    Took him out riding, he wanted to work and schooled beautifully never bothered to buck because he enjoyed it to much, he went brillantly. I want keep so talking to my sister about going halves with my sister.
    So proud I have had him here for a week and I don't want him to go home.

    Well, he's only been there a week. That doesn't tell you he's safe. You must consider that 4 riders have been injured by him. Did they all ride the same? Did they know each other? Did he live at the same place for those intervening years or was he moved around? How many people regularly rode him? Do you know the circumstances of the injuries? Give it time and be on your toes. As nice as he has been so far, it takes months for a horse to adapt to a new environment and behaviors will change over that time.

    On the other hand, he may be a one person horse. They do exist.

    He's been ridden by many people but his main rider was his owner, who has decided she can't do it now. He has been moved but not changed hands since 18 months old. Now 10 years old I know some riders went out pulling him around and others just sat there and whipped him when he pushed it.
    I've known him long enough to know that he's not the nasty beasty he's made out to be, he's a big softy. I know he came be head strong if your not ahead of him but I think the problem was the riders were al trained by the same person and I have seen another injury caused by the riding.
    My own youngster and my old loan mare are both one person horses, sadly my old loan mare had to stay at the yard I used to work on.
