My husband has taken lessons with me for the past few years and was getting quite accomplished, practicing regularly, going on trail rides, etc. Since fall of last year, he has ridden about hmmmm, 4 times? I, on the other hand, rode regularly, not only my horse but his as well as I cannot stand to see perfectly good horses stand idle, they need exercise. Once this spring, we went on a trail ride together, his horse tried bolting up a hill with him, he got off, I yelled at him to put that horse in the ditch & get back on him! There is nothing wrong with his horse, I trail ride this horse all the time through rugged terrain, on the road, use him for leadline with our wee granddaughter, you name it! Lessons started back up in April, usually we go once or twice a week, well I went, he always had excuses...."Oh it's a nice day, I want to ride the Harley through the canyon"....or "I have no time today, I have to this or that or what have you". Sure, fine Daddy-O, do as you please. In the meantime, the riding coach & me are cooking up plans. Today he finally went to lessons. His horse was a jerk as he usually is if the cues are sloppy, or if he feels he can get away with things. Me, the perfect student who practiced all through winter and has won all high points at every show this spring, got to sit in the middle and watch Mr. Iwanttodrivethecanyoninstead, and his horse, Mr. Youarenotthebossofme get their butts worked, muahahaha. Both him & his trusty steed were dripping in sweat, while I watched and my horse (his horse's sire) smirked. They got it all worked out again, and Daddy-O promised our coach never, ever to ditch instruction.

You can't make me!
Put your old lady back on me, I understand her better!

I have no idea what it is you want, nor do I care!

Ok, now you got the hang of it!
