I will absolutely agree with this statement!
I have had Fayde for over a year now and we have been having so much fun relearning that humans can be OK that I just haven't gotten around to riding her yet. I will eventually, we have been working steadily on learning that she doesn't have to go 90 miles and hour every second of her life, that the human isn't to be run over or dragged, that a saddle is NOT a mountain lion.
That last part, wow, I don't know how they started her, but it certainly fixed in her mind that things on her back were bad news. I have been up in the stirrup leaning over, but haven't gotten up the courage to actually swing my leg over yet. One of these days I'll know when it's time, we have a lifetime ahead of us to get there.
Any way, there are many things to do from the ground. There are even in-hand trail and agility classes if you like to show. Don't give up.
