I had a mare I spent tons of time with, broke myself, took everywhere! She rode perfectly, had impeccable manners, could be trusted anywhere with anybody, and was a good looking mare. I never thought twice about selling her when the option came up. There was no connection and to me she was "just a horse".
Poco was my love from day one. We Just "clicked" from the get go. He was only affectionate with me and seemed overall happier when I worked with him. He always gave his 110% and was willing to do anything asked. He is DEFINITELY not like this with everyone.
Some people an horses just don't "click". Just like you may not be best friends with every person you meet. Or you may be indifferent toward some dogs or other peoples horses. You haven't failed at all! I received TONS of compliments on my mares obedience which proved I did well with her. But with Poco people specifically compliment that ever present connection between us and that makes me glow. :)
