I no my arab doesnt even like when I ride my stockhorse and he will pick on his best friend for days after I ride him you might think i'm silly todo this but I love my arabs and they do normally only bond to one person :))
All I can say is wow. I've never heard that before. But I'm not a fan of Monty either. Given he is an older guy and his methods do work for some people, I think that "sneaks" around the horse too much. I've seen some his shows on tv and all I could do was shake my head and laugh. I'm not saying he's bad, just not for me.
Edit: Granted I haven't had a lot of experience with Arabs. My wife's horse is Arab or mostly, and she has a good connection with him. I do have some issues when I first get on him but that is because I won't tolerate the things she lets him get away with. Once he tests me, the rest of the ride is fine. He stands better for the farrier and vet with me holding than with her. Posted via Mobile Device
