aunt scared of horse.
my aunt bought a horse awhile ago with no horse knowledge she barely rode a horse.ever.she doesnt know how to take care of one. And she's scared to death of my horse,who is tall but she has had 3 yr olds riding her.but at least she is broke to ride and is calm.as for her new horse she bought. She bucks,rears,she is crazy and she wont let you catch her.she is a nervous wreck and she has struck at me.she can lounge,lead,load,bathe,etc. and does good on the ground but she is a devil in the saddle.she will do anything she can to get you off.rearing and spinning in circles,running into fence posts trying to hurt your knees.as soon as I put my foot in the stirrup she takes off. And my aunt wants to ride her!!!
My aunt says"shes just a little nervous,shell be fine if you ride and work with her for a little while"
Now im stuck riding and working with this horse,taking care of her everyday while my aunt just comes down every once in a while to brush her and say that she needs more riding time before my aunt gets on her.
Adelina is a 8 yr old paso fino mare that I hate working with.and my aunt suggested that we go t a show with her.she did horrible at the show and she reared,refused to obey any of my commands,and when we went into the arena she wouldnt go above a walk.
My aunt gets her feelings hurt very easily and adelina is the only horse she wants to ride!i keep telling her to ride my horse and get her a broker quarter horse or something that doesnt want to kill me everytime I get near it.but she keeps on saying that she needs a slow gaited horse,which adelina is but I don't think gaited horses are the best thing to start off on.as I have a tn walker and for the first year I had her she was a handful to ride.
Sorry its so long I was just venting,any one have anyone like this at your barn?
its horse show time in tennessee!!!!!!!
