This lady comes to visit at a show. She watches us go, makes a couple comments about it being "too hard" for him...... Then, when he tries to push his butt at me later she tells me he is looking at a bird and meant nothing by it when I discipline him. Now, keep in mind that when she owned him he was 2 or 3, threw her, breaking her collar bone and, in another incident double barreled her. Again-YIKES! She is still making excuses! I tried to explain it to her, but she doesn't get it at all.
Fast forward to today, 3 months later. She messages me on FB and wants to know what her vet means her current horse is "spoiled". She and her friends cannot figure out why the vet would say this as they make their horses work. How do I explain to this woman that SHE is the issue and most likely her current horse is lacking a few manners! I have never met the horse so I am guessing here, but usually I can put the pieces together pretty well.
Sweet lady, but not much of a horsewoman. Needs a pasture potato.
