Plodding is great once in a while

Almost every lesson I have with my trainer, she comments about my horse making things difficult, making me work for "it", keeping both of us on our toes, etc. She doesn't say it rudely, she just makes the observation.

Personally, I love that my horse is a challenge and I'm constantly working to stay a step ahead. Every once in a while, however, I would love to have the kind of horse that you can pull from the pasture, saddle, and mindlessly ride for a little bit. Just once in a while.

That's all.

As much as I love my Arab, I have to agree. Once in a while it would be nice to have a quiet horse that is willing to plod forward along the trail on a loose rein, paying no mind to anything but an occasional cue from me.

Lol, exactly! I wouldn't trade my Arabian for anything in the world, but my brain gets tired sometimes (and my body, too)!

I'm surrounded by paints and QHs and I get a little envious sometimes when they just plop a saddle on and go.

It's funny that you mention your Arabs and are wishing for the kind of horse you can just saddle and go. Of all the horses in my pastures, the 2 I'm most likely to let sit for 6 months and then just "saddle and go" are Arabs. One was my stallion, though he's now gelded. Even as a stallion I would trust him over just about anyone else.

Its all about the individual. My arab (except for the frisky days) is willing to plod a lot of the time. My Bo's qh mare you have to be a lot more attentive to, and definitely have to work to ride.

My Arabian isn't one of those and I've known a few who were the plodding type. I don't care about the breed to be honest - that's why I never mentioned any in the first place. I just want a lazy horse once in a while, lol!
