This thread has no importance I know I just needed to get it off my chest. I have a bay mare that is 8 yrs old. She is 15.2 hands and pretty thick. Anyway where that comes into perspective is this. I have trained her to be really light to cueing. By light I mean really light. I can do a lot with this mare. Open close gates, slide off her but and jump on, crawl under her and camp out there, ride her with no bridle or halter bareback, rope off her, pack her etc. Anyway those people that I would called experienced riders just love her and wish she was theirs. In fact I get asked to breed her quite often. On the flip side some people get on and start squeezing her to stay on. That in turn starts pushing her buttons and she gets really confused and starts prancing around. Well because of this some people have started saying a lot and being quite rude about what a horrible devil horse she is. Well anyway theres my story and I don't know why but it just seems to get at me. In fact the other day to prove a point to one of them while riding in the hills I set her reins on the halter strap behind her ears (oh yeah I only ride with a halter) turned around backwards and rode her home sitting on her but. While I was talking to them there horse just out of nowhere started bucking. Long story short my bay is still a POS according to them and a few others.
Well now for some reason I feel a little better. Thanks for listening. Heres a few pics of her.
