    I have horses that are really broke and they behave in most circumstances and for the great majority of people. If your horse isn't working for other people then you have a hole in it's training and the horse is used to filling in for you and struggles to fill in for other riders. It's not a great bond is more like a co-dependent relationship.

    I am inclined to agree with you Kevin. On the other hand though I think even the most well trained horses can get a sense of what they can get away with when being ridden by strangers. I use to take horse treks and I have to say those trekking horses are amongst the best trained that I have ever seen. Yet there were a couple of them that would definitely not give their best for some people. They weren't bad by any means they would just not go the way they had been trained to. These horses are trained stock horses and with an experienced rider and a job to do these horses are dynamite, turn on a dime, and really move out. On a trek same horses, slow, hard work, like watching paint dry.

    So while it is fair to say that some horses may have gaps in their education it is also possible to say that a smart horse can take advantage of the gaps in a riders education.

    Definitely agree with you there, and I think that green horses are also in that same kind of category, not becuase of what they know, but because of what they don't know yet, and different riders may darn well confuse them, especially a rider who is no more trained than the horse! That is why no one will ride my mare for the time being, because I want to know who is stepping up into the saddle for her, because she is an extremely responsive horse to bit, seat and leg, I don't want to throw someone on her that has no clue how to control all those pressures.
