I don't trust myself sometimes, but I generally always trust my Vida. We have been out on trails where we weren't exactly sure of how to get back to camp. The horses always know
Same with myself and moo

I trust Misty 100% and she wouldn't intentionally hurt me but Jubilee is right, horses are horses and don't let safety slide.

Like the other day when I was feeding moo, she was eating real slow so I stood infront of her holding up the bucket so she finished quicker. I find myself mesmerized (sp?) by her pretty little nose wiggling and chewing and so my head is tilted downward kinda over the bucket. You can guess what happens next, something scares her and up goes her head at speed and smacks me straight in the nose... ouch, blood pouring out my nose & a fat lip
She didn't know my face was there but a horse is still a horse, she was very sorry because when I was leaning over catching the blood with a tissue she forgot about the feed and put her muzzle against my cheek like

Ah, Daytona can be hard to trust sometimes...sometimes she's a bit mischevious & very unpredictable, lol. :P But overall, yeah, I can trust her. I know her inside & out, I have ridden her & been around her so long.
I don't know about 100%, though...about 75, so far.

No, I don't trust my horse but I love her anyway.

I agree with some of the others... horses are horses at the end of the day but I do trust them, I just don't trust myself. My instructor tells me I need to trust my horses more and enable them (Evo especially) to help me. However, its me who I don't trust... I don't trust my balance and so I take up too much rein sometimes. So as much as I'd like to say I'm capable of trusting my horses, I guess I do always hold back... I'm getting MUCH better though... but since I recently fell off and broke my leg, I think it's going to take some time to get the trust back to where it was lol.
On the ground I trust them 100%, and despite it was Honey I fell off of, I trust myself on her more as we're better suited... me and Evo's expressive trot still aren't the best of friends lol.

Sis I trust completely as far as being able to trust a horse goes, Jazz there are some things you can trust her with others no way. Justice is still young and although he is the calmest of the 4 I still don't trust that he won't kick. Misty on the other hand has struck out at me before with her front leg and attempted a cow kick so I don't trust her no farther than I could throw her.

I trust my 14 year old Racking horse Shadow. But I have two Quarter horses that i've never helt completely at ease with. My wife has a Kentucky mountain horse that is not trustworthy, but she's only six and my wife is putting alot of work into her.

Some days its easier to trust my horse than others... luckily those days are getting more frequent. :) But we still have days where I can't even give him an inch...

Out of all of my horses, Ruby is the one I trust the most. I've ridden her at night (not on purpose; a trail ride took longer than estimated) and rather than call my dad to 'escort' us with his truck headlights, I just kept riding her, even though I couldn't see a thing. The amount I trust her is probably going to get me in trouble one day...
I trust Bandit a lot, too. He's only a three-year-old, but even as a newborn, he was just so calm and level headed about everything. I actually thought something was wrong with him for the first few months, because he was so calm and hardly spooked at anything!
Between him and Ruby, they're the only ones I'll let a beginner rider work with, just because they're so forgiving of mistakes and patient.
