No, I've broken in horses to ride before, she jut the first one I've broke for someone other than family. They had her at a different trainer and he took 6 weeks and just did ground work with her. And in the meantime starved her down to nothing. :( she's got such a great personality, she is by far the gentlest and sweetest horse I've ever broke.
There is no sport like barrel racing. It requires more speed than a sprinter, more balance than a gymnast, more grace than a dancer, and a stronger team than football.
