I don't blame my horse for what happen, my inexperience-ness lead to it. I wear a helmet now and am more cautious with what I do with him.
Thanks. I haven't given up training, I just watch what I ride (due to being thrown off and ran over numerous times, I've already developed arthritis in my back). There's too many good horses out there to waste time on a bad one.
Not that I'm saying you are in my position - but there will come a time when we all have to say that's enough. It's not giving up, it's just being sensible.
What I would suggest is finding a repliable trainer to give you a hand - the one you had was obviously not working but I would still look into this idea. I trained for quite awhile one my own but when I started with a trainer, I learned a whole lot real quick, it just took me time to find her.
There is nothing that's going to benefit you better then having a good, solid trainer.
And just as an FYI, if someone jacka$$ was throwing rocks at my horse, I'd get off and beat the ever living sh*t out of him. Probably twice. Maybe once again for good luck.
