It has every thing to do with this thread and her horse issues. She is complaining that she can't go anywhere and about her sheltered home life. If she lived on her own she could make her own money and spend it any way she wanted.

She could go look at and buy what ever horse she felt she had the means to do. She posted it and I have a right to comment on it.

You need to learn the difference between comment and ridicule.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Wow, these comments are totally uncalled for . Since you know absolutely nothing about this person's life other than a few lines posted on an internet forum, I really don't think you're in the position to judge. Besides, why turn a friendly thread into something bad?

To the OP: did you end up looking at the horse? I do have to say that my arab was ridden much like this mare. They even gave me the running martingale with him. I've had him for about a month and a half. In that time I can now ride him on a loose rein, he has 3 very nice gaits, and he is absolutely bonded with me. I just took the martingale in the house after it sat in his bin for all this time. Point being, I will never use this on him and the difference with just giving him a little space has been AMAZING . I would not consider this a horrible issue if you are a confident, patient, and calm rider. If the horse were bucking and rearing (which I wouldn't blame her for given the way she is being ridden), then it would be a different story, but she really isn't trying to do anything wrong. I personally would give it a shot.

Also, there isn't anything wrong with bringing the trailer and if you really don't like her you can just bring it back home empty. If you do like her, well it's all ready to go .

I am just to the point. That is my personality. Some things that look black and white to me may not to others. I don't like a lot of posts by others either but I try to keep to what I see and believe not tell them how rude they are. I have been very independant from a very early age so I could never imagine not having more independance at 20

Just because you were diapering yourself at three months old doesn't mean anyone who wasn't working in the mines at 5 years old is somehow defective. You can use your life as a measuring stick to judge everyone else, but expect to be judged in return, and possibly by people who did things sooner, faster, and better than you.

I wouldn't get this mare without a trainer if I were you. You don't seem experienced enough in these sort of situations to retrain her bad habits.

I am not doubting your ability to handle a hotter horse, but there is a difference between a hot horse and a horse with bad habits.

She would be super cute with a better rider!

Like someone else already said- you could always take the trailer out with you when you get to go look at her and if its a disaster then bring that trailer back empty.

No whisper of lover, no trilling of bird, can stir me as hooves of horses have stirred.
