Yes Eliz is correct, I was just using my horse as an example, he is very well trained & behaved, safe enough that to let young kids do his stall cleaning at shows ( with him in the stall :LOL: )
But there are those that haven't been raised as he has and with trainers that don't use the best methods, there are bad apples in ANY breed, especially when it comes to High level competitions ;)
