Marketing a horse for my ex would be:
"Plug horse. Will walk calmly. Can be moved to a trot. Will take some effort to move to a canter. Will resist a gallop at all cost. Will do nothing that might create a situation that you could fall."
That woman worried almost as much about falling off as my 7 year old granddaughter did the first time I put her on a horse and walked it around. Had to get rid of her (the ex), because she was such a pain. Wanted to tell me how I could ride
, because I didn't share her phobias
. She rode well too, but just obsessed about getting hurt (she'd had a nasty spill in her youth from a spirited horse, but nothing broken so get over it
