i dont mind grumpy horses, i actually have a thing for them :P but you can tell if a horse is awesome to ride and you still dont wish to own them, that loving horses isnt just to do with being on their back.

Half a tonne of raw power, spirit and grace between your legs. It's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.

I have never hated a horse, but there have been horses that I haven't gelled with as well as others. When we went to view my mare, I instantly clicked with her, it was like magic I do agree with the above, horses are made bad by humans

There has only been one horse that I didn't get along with. I tried and tried...but that 'connection' was never there.

She's a 13yr SSH mare we had a few years back. We had her for about 4 years, but she was just soooo nasty I couldn't stand to be around her. Once you had her haltered she was fine, but in the pasture or stall...ugh.

She came from a home of inexperienced horse owners. They thought it was cute when she would nip, or funny when she would ear back and slam the bucket when you were pouring her feed. I think the real issue with her came when she foaled and was VERY protective of her colt. She'd kick and charge at you...so they didn't mess with her. Once the colt had been weaned, the damage had been done.

We corrected a lot of her people problems, but she still had that nasty mare syndrome lol. She wasn't that bad, but she was just so testy I couldn't take it.
