LIke for instance.. puddles, or going a certain way down a trail. He was given to her for free becuase he reared and flipped over on his previous owner in the arena for a barrel race. Just letting you know because I read somewhere on one of your posts that your a first time horse buyer. So when you go to ride him make sure you take him around instead of around the pasture where she will have you ride becuase he does tricks. Just so you don't waste your money. Please do not bring this up to her, as of we already have our problems toward each other. Just letting you know, but she may of already told you this. He is very agressive in the pasture too.
Whoa...small world. And I guess that's his registered name, that would make sense. And that is the name of the woman I've been corresponding with. Well, that's disappointing. I don't even know that I'd want to waste my time driving 1.5 hours to test-ride a horse that rears like that. She said he'd "pop" if his rider wasn't confident, but nothing about rearing and flipping over on someone.
Thank you for the warning.
