This "trainer" sounds awful. If I even STARTED to write what I thought about him, I would be banned from this board (am I allowed to even say that? )
You and Duke are troopers, I know you wouldn't be there if you didn't have to be. Do you have a post telling more about Duke? When I read your first post on this topic I realized I really missed the other one.
Keep up the good work!
No, I don't think I have a post about Duke, so I'll just put his info here
He's a 12 year old Registered QH. His registered name is Ergot's Duke or something. He has Impressive in his lines somewhere. He doesn't belong to me, but I'm borrowing him to show in my 4-H show this Sunday. He's 16 something hands and is big and lazy. I've only seen him get scared once because the scary hiding goat made a noise :roll:
I've been working with him for about 3 weeks, and he's gotten tons better.
Hmm, random side note: I'm dehydrated because of today and I'm starting to love horses less... I really feel like just sleeping all day tomorrow...
Are you riding him for someone else? Sounds like you just need to give this guy clarification on who is supposed to be working with Duke. I'd move him further away from that guy instead of closer!
I was sooo thinking about it, but he rode Duke while I was at the Courthouse buying him the plates for his trailer!!!! Next time I'm unsaddling him before we go to the arena so he can't do that anymore! Also, the top of my saddle is like 4 inches from the ceiling in the trailer and I will be sooo mad if my new saddle gets broken!
I think I'm going to stay away from there for awhile, even though I really wanted to own my own horse and keep it there. I guess owning a horse will just have to wait...
