I own 4 horses. The one I am thinking of selling is a 16 hh Morgan. He of all my horses respects me and listens to me the most. He calls for me follows me, He loves me. He is very sure footed and should be a endurance horse even at 15 as he is all go. The problem is that he is very sensitive to all cues so when I am in the saddle and I miss cue him his response is to go faster or to crow hop. This scares me. Which scares him and so the circle begins. I have had trainers come out and ride him 2 times a week for the last year and he is the same. The trainers love him as you only ask once and he will trot all day, as fast as you want. I can afford to keep him and he is a great part of my herd he is a little mare ish and keeps the other gelding in line.
I guess is it a good life for him here? I may get my confidence back some day to ride him He is well cared for and my husband rides him once in a while but prefers his own horse. I am projecting I know but I prefer my Quarter horse who rides bitless and is a brave and steady guy and I think my Morgan knows he is second fiddle and doesn't like it. Sorry for the book.
