Luvs2ride, I'm under impression from the OP that she is not using the saddle on her horse, but would much rather be able to, as she apparently absolutely adores it..atleast I hope so...Otherwise, I would have to agree.

UUUGGGGHHHHH!!!!
Ok.... if your horse has behavioral issues that are beyond your knowledge and experience to correct (yes... this can be frustrating)... then by all means sell your horse.
But just because your horse does'nt do what you want, it is NOT ok to get angry with your horse. In fact it is NEVER ok to get angry with a horse.

Honey, not all issues are behavioral and beyond our knowledge. Sometimes, there just isn't anything to the horse/human relationship. There is nothing wrong with passing a horse on that you don't personally connect with. Don't make this out to be more than what it is. The girl likes her saddle and is kind of 'meh' about her horse. That doesn't make it wrong!

If it is never OK to get angry with a horse, then you best label me wrong. Because every time I grab a lead rope and a halter and head out to the field to grab Froggy....and Minister of the Silly Walks runs away from me....I get angry. Really angry.

I'm going to have to agree with Cori.
Also, Dude makes me angry more than he makes me happy at the moment, but there's nothing wrong with that. As long as one doesn't attack said horse in anger, there is absolutely no issue with being angry at a horse.

Really.... I'm suprised... I read all over this forum posts people write about how adept horses are at picking up on our emotions and reading our body language. In fact I was under the impression most people pretty much accept that concept as fact rather than theory.
I'd bet you'd all have more luck with your horses if you had more patience.

Oh, I have plenty of patience. Dude knows when mine is about up and does what he knows he was suppose to do in the beginning. I like to think of him as a mule; it's much easier if I make him think it's his idea to do what I want him to. :p
I also completely agree with horses picking up our emotions, as I've suggested just above in the beginning of my post.(:
I've gotten quite good at hiding my emotions as well, from both animals and humans; I find it rather simple as well. There is a time and place for everything, and that's the same with emotions, not just actions.

Hey, it's me again- the OP.

I'm not having any behavioral issues with my mare. As someone else stated, it's just that we don't mesh well, and that's what I'm angry about. But just because I'm angry and frustrated doesn't mean I'm treating her with disrespect or being in a bad mood. Make sense?

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who loves their saddle. I'm also glad that so many of you are understanding of my situation! Thanks to all the positive posts on here! I love hearing from you all!

And thanks for the negative posts as well I guess, haha. Everyone is entitled to their opinion!

I would agree that they can pick up on some emotions. Its just that they're not bending over backwards to please you as say a dog might.
I would say the strongest emotion they will sense from you is fear, because we tend to stiffen and clench when we are afraid, confusing the horse.
But if you have Never ridden a horse that you just didn't click with, then you probably just haven't ridden enough horses yet, lol.
I have been lucky enough to have ridden almost 200 different horses. Of those, 2 have actively disliked me. 3 I have shared an incredible bond with. The rest, we got along just fine.
The 2 I had trouble with I rode just the same as the others, with patience, easy hands, yada yada. Didn't make a difference, we just didn't click. They were sour with me, fine with many others. Oh well.
One of my special horses was a jerk with almost everyone else, but an angel for me. I am no horse whisperer or top level rider, we just clicked. Same as you click with or dislike certain people for no concrete reason. It happens.

Lol... I guess if you buy a horse to fit your saddle, then whenever you feel angry, you can always think about riding in your glorious piece of tack, and your anger will melt away. ;oP

I'd bet that there are many horses that would mesh better with the OP that the saddle will fit.(;
But, half the time I'm angered by a horse, the tack is still in the tack room, sothat idea would go down the drain ;P
