If there has been only one thing I have learnt about horses it is this Its not a problem horse untill i've had it a year, then if it has not change its a problem and not always the horse.
You hit the nail on the head with. We are learning each other.!! And that takes time. I have Bugs and its coming up to a year however with the lack of riding we are still learning each others signals we are both improving though some what slowly. With summer coming on I expect to be well into training by the new year, and with a little luck Bugs will have improved also.
I hit 65 next month.
