I give up. Humor will not format. Just use the link and scroll down. It's still a funny read. It does sound like we are all on the same page about what intermediate means when looking for a horse.

I have no problem with those phrases, as long as the reasoning behind them is clearly explained. Saying them and offering no description of the horses' capabilities, temperament and training level lead me to believe that they are blanket statements for bad behavior.
ThursdayNext and Houston like this.

We drink to our youth, to the days come and gone; for the age of oppression is now nearly done.

Also, to me it means someone that isn't using the reins to balance, can actually ride instead of just sit there, and has an understanding of the aids/cues needed, and can use them, for both types of rider.

Experienced to me means as other wrote. Rider has to know what they are doing, and be able to be the leader from the get go.

Horses make me a better person.
