He is the best first horse I could have asked for. He is green but a "safe" green in the sense that he doesn't ever think of doing anything wrong undersaddle but needs work on balance/strength/stearing etc. His ground manners were far from desireable when I got him but he has gotten better already. I've learned a lot from him already and he seems to have learned a lot from me as well (hopefully he's as appreciative of this experience as I am :P)
Did I mention he LOVES to cuddle? When I first got him he wanted NOTHING to do with me and it was heartbreaking. I'm thinking he has trust issues due to his past. He went from moving away in the pasture when I tried to pet him to "HOLD MEEE"
I think because of this he is going to be a one person kind of horse. My friend rode him recently but I think his anxiety/trust problems would resurface if anyone were to work with him. Maybe I'm wrong, it'd be nice if I was...I plan on having him forever so I guess all in all it doesn't matter as long as we are both happy :)
