That's fair enough. My dad won't ride because of the risk of getting injured and not being able to work... I know those fears!
That's why my boyfriend won't ride... he does stunts on his motorcycle but won't ride a horse... Crazy. I wish she was more realistic about horses, but that's why she cannot ride my horse. I guess I could be mean and let her ride and fall off & just hope that she doesn't get injured badly, but on the other end I've done SO much work getting him to trust his rider and not just flip out that I worry about undoing it by letting somebody ride him that doesn't have the skills to deal with him when he gets scared. Oh well... hmm.. I feel like I'm hijacking this thread.. Sorry . I've given you my 2 cents... or 10 , so I will stop now!
