Back to the gelding. I have only had him about 18 days and am having some issues, like evading the bit, he is a sweetheart on the ground, comes when he is called. He is going to the trainer for a refresher.
Anyway, I had posted at another forum the problem I was having and was blasted for buying a haflinger. This person compared them to OTTB and said they were unsuitable for a beginner and several others chimed in. Obviously she had owned one, and sold it for a seven year old to ride, telling me a child is different than a beginner. I won't even go there.
I was confused. I had done research, own one, and am (was) under the impression that they were not spooky, hot, whatever.
