Poor girlie! A lot of people don't like standardbreds, my lesson barn's BO included. When I mentioned me riding the two of them, she said, "Ugh. They're so high strung. That's why we don't have them here." I found that completely the opposite. Bean is totally trusting of me, except for when it comes to haltering. She absolutely loves being curryed too. Zeak, not so much :/
