This is sort of a rant over something I read here on the forum today--no disrespect to the person who wrote it at all, but why in the heck would you want a horse who just comes to you and doesn't care if you run him off a cliff? Yes, my gelding can be a handful at times, and I like him that way. I would rather have him test me than accept any idiot who thinks they know how to ride. When he challenges my authority, it means he's got some brain left in him. When he accepts that I'm still the leader, that means he's using it. I like leaders. Followers to me, seem dangerous. Am I alone in this thought process? Or do all people really want anymore is an overgrown puppy dog?
