Well in my point of view....good on you for havein such a good relationship with ur horse and the trust that you would hav with that horse would be huge. Personly I think that if you don't take risks with ur horse or do stupid things to the then how are they goin to learn if someone comes up and does somefin stupid then whats goin to happen??
No its really good that you trust ur horse and he trusts you....by the way I do pretty much the same stuff that you do wif ur horse, I do that wif mine, I pull the tail, lay down in front of her, lay in the paddock while she's chuckin a raz, when groomin I go underneath her....people do this to there horses in there everyday life.
Its not lik ur the only one that has don't this so don't feel bad or anything.
How about those horses in shows how they sit and everything...that is done out of trust...trust gets you very far with ur horse.
People hav no right to critasize you all they can really do is tell you to be careful or tell you that its not a good idea.
Its ur choice yeh its dangerous yeh its stupid and yeh its crazy but were just kids and we r havin fun with our mates and puttin or trust in them, no one else knows our horses lik we do!!! We r the ones the spend all times with them having fun or training doesnt matter what.
But all in other words his a nice horse and he has a very nice eye.
