    Oh. I have a few. When I learnt to ride, the YO would get all sorts of horses in on the behalf of dealers.

    "Put Sophie on them, she bounces"- Not as in chubby kid bounces, as in flexible bones bounces.

    Fee- This 'kids' pony. Absolutely GORGEOUS dainty pony- no joke. Fab moves, and first dressage-y thing I ever rode.
    We trained her at first in the tiny indoor, then when the weather was good we took her in to the outdoor school. To say she was spooky was an understatement. Scared of her own shadow. To the point where she didn't give a darn about who she hurt, even if it was herself- she just bolted.
    She ran in to other horses, and one kicked her, but grazed my knee. The bruise was quite something else.
    When she charged and ran over the YO under saddle, however, no one rode her again after that.

    Galina- the school horse. Galina means little hen or something. NOT. I was the only one she wouldn't fall over on when she reared. My mum refused to watch me ride her. She was taken away and shot.

    Wellington- Never was there a horse quite like ol' Boots. Stunning looking, and proud. As a 5yo was worth a lot of money in the SJ ring. At 10 his mind was broken. I learnt to sit a buck on that horse. And spins. And shoulder drops. Any anything else he could throw your way. He was mean, pure mean. I still have a scar on my chest where I had him in cross ties, ducked under the rope to go round and pick his other feet out, he managed to pull forwards and grab hold of me and wouldn't let go. Stable hand punched him in the side of the head to make him drop me.

    Well Sheena used to be insane. She broke my mom's friend's back, threw my dad[giving him back problems]. So they put me on her! Lol It wasn't quite like that. I was the only one who really knew how to ride and we got along. She has never bucked me. <3

    My friend's horse hates me, too! Everytime I ride him, he 1) rears and leaps, 2) bucks and leaps, 3) tries to make me die after every jump [with a leap in there somewhere, or 4) all of the above. He's an angel for her.

    Then...there's this ADORABLE shetland (like 9h or so)that a family friend has named Minnie. Super cute and gentle. UNTIL...you try to make her canter. Every single time I ride that stupid pony she throws me. I ask her to canter, so she runs off at this crazy trot and then canters for about 2 strides, the drops her outside shoulder, spins around, and bucks wildly. Awesome.:roll:

    Another mare I rode would also drop her shoulder when we were cantering in a 20meter circle and try to dodge the opposie way, no matter what I did for turning aids. I only fell off of her once.

    A huge TB race horse that when I galloped, I had to literally keep her head turned to her shoulder (at least she had one nostril to breathe thru) or she'd runoff!

    Well the most scary ride i'd been on in a few years, was an older barrel horse mare, who had been lame, and I was tring her out with the vets permission to see if she was truely sound. Her walk and trot were fine, got her really calm in them even, so we advanced on. I was prepared for her to bolt, and wanted to give her the chance to calm down on her own, so I was out in a 100 acre field, we walked, troted, then I asked her to lope. I heard a great loud pop from her hindquarters and she went bucking/galloping thru the field. Fortunalty she was pretty smooth,but I was still occionally looking for a good place to land if I need/had to jump off. I had a very strong bit (the bit her owners used on her) and I still could not get her stopped.. Finally I just calmly talked to her and got her head pulled around, and she stopped,poor thing was scared to pieces and was shaking! Well come to find out, she was only sound at a walk and trot,her barrel racing days were over. It was sad.she had loads of want to and potential.
