It's understandable if you don't have time to work on it everyday (who does!!!) but personally I'd get so p***** off that I'd have a meeting with my horse
Haha, believe me, it's hard for me to deal with sometimes with my Arab being the sweetest thing I've ever met, and then her being a sassy little thing. She's a lot of fun and a challenging ride, and it's well worth it when she behaves for me =] And it would obviously be nice if I didn't have to worry about the kicking, but there are some things you just can't control all the time when working with horses, no matter how badly you want to.
