I'm sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you were talking about the horse getting tired of the head nod, not the rider.

If you can afford a trip to the KY horse park, and know what you are looking for then there is the After christmas TWH sale. We have gone the last 3yrs and there are some REALLY good deals to be had.
