For a while I was getting "you are SOOOO lucky Bandit is so quiet and easy to deal with"
I spent months teaching the big oaf that walking through people and barging through gates was NOT acceptable. I spend hours reinforcing that he wasnt to move a muscle until I told him he could. I spent more than 30 min the first day riding him working with a horse who kept threatening to go up on the hind legs and doing little hops.
Yes, my horse is quiet, yes he is a gentleman and I love him to pieces.. BUT I worked my arse off to get him there! Maybe instead of telling me how easy I have it.. they should put the time and dedication into their own horses.
Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.
