^^ That is kinda what I was beginning to wonder ;p. I think the OP meant it like they have on the sale sites: 1= bombproof, 10= almost unmanageable.
Denny: 10, he was horribly abused before I got him and I made some mistakes on his training. As a result, he is still very touchy and terrified of men (from previous owner) and he is very hot (because of me). I would never be able to sell him (even if I wanted to) because I don't think anyone else would be able to handle his little quirks. My biggest fear would be that he would be labelled a "killer" end up in a dog food can.
Dobe: Depends on who is riding him. If it is me or Dad, 7. He is a very responsive horse who doesn't need much urging to pick up the pace. However, he is incredibly broke and will stay in a gait until I tell him to change it. If my Mom or step-mom is on him, he is about a 3. Perfectly content just to plod along with his head hanging; but he is still very responsive.
John: 8 because he is showing very studly attitude problems and is very green broke with only about 7 rides on him (done in Jan and Feb).
Flipper: 9. He was very spoiled by previous owner who used him for barrels and poles and parades. He would get hot and mad then throw himself down on top of the rider. Got him over most of that though but he is still pretty prancy and gets hot easily.
Koda: 4. He is very layed back considering no more training than he really has on him. Over the last year, he only has maybe 75 rides scattered out here and there.
Nester: 1 unless you have something flapping around like a plastic bag or flag then he may get to a 4. He is terrified of those. Other than that, he is the type of horse that you can turn a novice child loose on and be comfortable.
Flash: No longer ridden but he was a 2. Very dog broke and perfect for novice riders but with just a bit of urging would remember his younger days as a roping horse and scoot.
Sis: No longer ridden but she was a 6. Very broke but ornery. She would just decide that it was time to crow hop at the most inappropriate times. It was nothing malicious, just feeling good. She was a hot horse by nature and was never suitable for less than an intermediate rider.
