A green horse and green rider usually ends up with someone hurt. A saying I heard for years and years. There are always exeptions.
Thank you for your reply. Yes, she's green so there lies the problem it sounds. I will never ride her. I just posted in the general group my situation with Ruby--whether to allow her to stay here (belongs to a neighbor). She shows no respect for me (naturally) but because I'm over 60 with severe rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis I don't want to even try to work with her. We had 4 well trained Arabian here for awhile and despite my lack of comfort around them, they were respectful. I'm envious of all you folks here having so much experience with horses you can truly enjoy and appreciate these magnificent animals.
