    venting/confused

    Okay,so my eldest sister is down visiting. I am out riding my horse when they show up and was running around having fun. Anyways,I asked her if she would like to ride her. I had my endurance saddle on so it was nice and secure incase she needed something to hold onto there is a pommel/swell. Everytime she is down she never wants to ride Gidget. Never. I'm not sure why. I have worked with my horse for quite some time and she is only getting better. I know she wouldn't take off with her and she would be fine at a walk. My mom won't even ride her but that's because she doesn't like how bouncy my horse isBrian rides her on occasion but not really....I want people to ride her so Gidget can get use to other people riding her but no one will ride her....I don't get it. I don't want my horse to be a one person horse to be honest. She's really attached to me and is a one person horse....i need riders!

    I would definitely look from some little girls, around the place or at a local stable that would love to take a ride! Esspecially kids in lessons but don't own a horse, I used to love the extra riding time between lessons on friends horses as a kid.

    Heyy I'd be interested haha! But my luck you're probably not in maryland :p

    If you place ads asking for people to lease I bet you would have some takers

    I'd ride Gidget in a heartbeat!!! But though not as far as Maryland, I am hardley close. If you do find someone to ride her from time to time, have them sign a release of liability, ok?

    Honestly, after the experience I had getting on a strange horse and immediately getting my @$$ handed to me coated in dirt, I'm a little wary of riding other people's horses "for" them.

    Are your sister or anyone else you've tried to persuade to ride Gidget horse people? If they aren't, it can often be intimidating for non-horsey people to ride a horse for the first time, especially one that's not falling asleep as it stands there. Some people are fine with it and take to it well, but a lot of non-horse people are extremely intimidated by the idea of sitting on a roughly-1000lbs animal with a mind of its own and only a piece of metal in its mouth and a piece of leather in each hand to control it with. Those of us that are around these horses regularly tend to forget that.

    Just my two cents.

    Yea,all of them are horse people. Well my two sisters aren't much. My twin is terrified of my horse and my eldest sister got thrown off by her horse who wasn't broke to ride but she decided to try and ride the horse anyways and ever since then she hasn't ridden..but she does plan on riding my mom's old horse that is miss plod-along. I don't want anyone to lease my horse. I don't trust many people with my animals to be honest. I sold a horse who ended up in a bad situation..never again. I will make sure to have an agreement printed out..how should it go?
    I might have some kids come ride her...I'm sure I can find a few :P Just at the walk and they have to have lessons and a helmet...all that good stuff. I can give them beginner lessons if they wanted..hmm...I just want Gidget to not be cranky with other people..she is fine at the walk a nd I just want someone to be on her at a walk..if it's a trot or canter she gets mad at other people.
