Do you own a horse?
How do they compare to a riding school horse?
I only ride lesson horses, but I have ridden non-lesson horses before. With non-lesson horses I found they were usually more patient and had better ground-manners.
Have you ever been bitten/kicked/thrown off a riding school horse?
I have been bit, same one tried to kick me, and I fell off, not thrown off one. In the horses defence, he is the lowest of the herd so clear boudries by the person handling him need to be set, once that happens he is an angel. Oh, and it wasn't him I fell off of.
When riding a school horse, do they seem to enjoy being ridden?
Most love it...some just like testing the rider. But most of the ones I've ridden get excited when they know they are going to be worked! That and they know when children are about and that they have to look after them. Older people tend to have it harder. (Like one horse if I was on his back and just said trot, he would ignore me. When he had a little girl on his back who's legs aids can't possible be decent, if someone even spoke the word trot, he would go into a nice slow trot.)
When not being ridden, do the horses seem more relaxed?
depends if they think they are getting worked or fed haha
