I sure wouldn't be riding him. If it is a job requirement, I'd get a new job. As far as the stable goes, he is a HUGE liability risk. If you were being paid as an employee when you rode him and got hurt, then the business is legally responsible for all your medical bills.

Well, the way it works is as follows:

I go there 5 days a week, 8am-6pm. I work those hous for 2hrs training a day, I get a riding lesson and then a lecture. I am training towards and through my BHS exams, to be an instructor myself. We are also a riding school as well as a training centre. Ash isn't being used for the riding school since his latest antics. I will make it clear that I won't be comfortable riding him anymore, but I think I will have to suck it up and get on him again at some point.

I would not get on him. I think that the stable should sell him. They are going to get sued.

They always seem to make excuses for him, each time he has done this to me they have said he spooked. I know he didn't, he JUST DID IT. What his reasons are, whether behavioural or neurological I don't know. I don't trust him one bit. Like if the others get excited or whatever, I trust that they would never actually do anything. With him, it's just so hard to tell.

Like I said earlier, one day he is a gem and the next he is the devil!

I would like t clarify that he isn't used for riding school clients anymore.

My horse can get startled or spooked; however, she doesn't take it out on me. I pull on her reins, and she stops dead in her tracks. My horse is a very hot horse. She doesn't make a habit of throwing me off thank goodness.

I hope that you will think about your own safety. This horse is not working out well for your for sure. He is not worth being injured. When you were out of work for weeks due to him injuring you, has the stable owner paid your wages? Did they pay for your medical expenses? You could get killed, then what would your loved ones do? Just some things to think about.

No, I don't get paid my daily allowance unless I attend the stables that day. I just visited my nan this evening and she made me promise not to ride that particular horse again.
