Thank you, she is doing so well for what she has been through and what little time I have been able to put into her. Much more to come though :) She is so dang smart .. lunges like a pro!

I've been working with Arabians for most of my adult horse life, your not kidding! It's like they aren't horses, they are too smart to compare to another horse!

Yes however it makes me sad as I love my boy to death but he is so smart that all the bad training is just stuck and him fighting me is killing my already snsitive back (diagnosed with spondylolithesis basically a lower back fracture) and I am now looking for a horse I can compete on and jsut stick to working with him and either using him for endurance or helping my BO sell him as she has first right to him back.

That is where I got lucky, she was unhandled.
I am sorry to hear that :(
