I just wanted to point out, hybrid, that us people on the horse forum have NOTHING to lose when we give advice. It's not our check books, our broken back, our fingers bit off, our heart ache, or out liability! We don't say things like this be big meanie poopie heads, we care. The best advice isn't always the easiest to take, especially when it comes go a 1000 pound animal with a brain. I've been around the block, and MANY people here have been around the block several dozen more times then I have. Green people with green/naughty horses (almost) always end up in trouble not because they have bad intentions but they just don't know and better. The media portrays these idealistic stories of young girl rescues/raises horse and they ride off into the sunset together. That's almost never the case, not for a VERY long time with hundreds, if not thousands, in training expenses.

Oh dear, I foresee pain, fear and bruises in this girls future and confusion, terror eventually the meat wagon for this poor mare.

I have nothing to lose or gain at all by giving advice. I am all for rescueing horses and giving problem horses a chance (Again see my Reeco threads here: Reeco update for those that are interested )
HOWEVER i only advocate rescuing a horse when you have the experience, funds and time to put the problems right AND be willing to admit when the horse is too dangerous for you/anyone else and have that horse PTS if nessecary rather than pass the horse on.

In this situation Hybrid has non of the above and the only way it can end up is badly. The horse will be made worse by inexperianced handling and eventualy become a Dangerous and Vicious horse that even experianced proffessionals wont take on.

Hybrid - biting is NEVER acceptable I dont care if the horse is emaciated and not seen grass for years, biting is never acceptable, nor is kicking or rearing. Do yourself and the horse a favor, gift the horse to an experienced trainer and buy yourself some proper riding lessons.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT
