    If she's been riding since a young age but has only been on one other pony till now, then I wouldn't be putting on the impression that she knows what she's doing. If you've only ridden/worked with one horse for a long time then switching to a new one will bring up some issues in your ability to handle horses. Everyone has been there.
    Anyone can ''throw a fit'', not matter what age! I'm sure you still get upset about things! She obviously was not happy about the fact he's ''herd bound''.

    She has been on different horses at the high school aswell but they are all trained the same, act the same etc. I totally agree with what you're saying though, switching horses after a long time of the same can be hard. Something I'm not looking forward to doing. :(

    I'm not experienced and I admit that. I only started riding 3 years ago and got a horse 2 years ago. As for the problematic part, I don't have this trouble, I'm only trying to help out a friend.

    I know that I'm not experienced, I don't need others telling me that. I don't show or do anything fancy that people normally think makes an experienced rider, I just go trail riding on my black pony. As for instructors, trainers and lessons, I had 5 basic lessons 3 years ago. By basic I mean, trotting and walking around a round yard.

    Have I proven that I'm not experienced?

    Most experienced and knowledgeable adults do not toss a snit fit when they are simply told their horse is herd bound.

    Just saying.



    Hopefully the OP has been able to talk with her mother about these problems and they have developed a plan to help her deal with this issue before someone gets hurt.

    Well I think we have all proved im not an adult. Who really cares. Im a better rider than some adults and teenagers that I've seen. The point is yeah my horse might be a bit herd bound but I don't care. At least I know what the problem is now so I can work to fix it. I have appreciated what you have told me but I didn't need the whole argument.

    Can you all just stop posting stuff so I can work with my horse and what I got to do.

    I don't think you understand how a public BB works, Dusty.

    If you only want folks who agree with you and those who will stroke your ego, start a blog and make it private so only your friends can join.

    If you post on a public BB and ask for help and advice, you're going to hear things you might not like. Nature of the beast, and if you can't handle it, then maybe public BBs aren't for you.

    P.s

    I am not throwing a fit. I just don't really believe stardust can be herd bound because he has not done any of this stuff until he came to live with me at the farm, so I think he just needs a horse who can be a good friend for him. And now that horse is leaving and I am going to be in a lot of hell soon. But like all ways I will get through even if thee is a hick-up.Stardust is the perfect horse for me. My mum would not let me get a herd bound horse. You guys all have good points but sorry I have a better one.

    P.p.s Thanks kayley

    Being herd bound is not some evil horrible disease. It is just a thing that VERY many horses have. They are herd animals and all, they prefer to be in groups.

    Your mother has no control over whether a horse will become herdbound or not. If she's as experienced a horsewoman as indicated, she would know that.

    You sticking your tongue out, putting your fingers in your ears and going, 'Lalalalala, I can't hear you!!!' doesn't make your argument valid.

    I like your signature, altough I think you can't handle the truth. Because my horse is not herd bound. And if you are so obsessed with me posting private threads, stop posting on my public threads. Just don't have any thing to do with any of my threads

    Oh child, you're the one proving you can't handle the truth.

    Your horse is herdbound, whether you want to believe it or not. Don't know why you think it's such an evil, evil thing to be herdbound.
