I won't go into major detail, but I was trying a horse for someone and I had the audacity to insist (first mistake) that he stand 60 ft away from his buddy and just look at him, not be next to him, wanted to see if I brought his buddy to the ring I could safely have people on him. Guess not! I explained to the owner, once the horse threw himself and me to the ground to remedy the situation, that his horse was not trained, but merely allowing him to ride him on his horses terms, e.i. With buddy, when he wanted too, because it was a nice day for a trail, ya know the drill. Let that be a lesson to everyone, beware the free horse! Even if it's 14 and advertised as beginner safe!
