Excellent post and like other's have said, glad that it's stickied.
I'm one that hasn't had much luck at all in finding the right horse. I've done everything that has been suggested in all the threads and have spent a ton of cash, still w/o the right horse. Hence, me taking a huge emotional and mental break from riding.
That said, I love riding, love horses and it's always been a dream to have one. Nothing outstanding, just a good ole been there, done that citizen that has little issue and only wants to jaunt around the neighborhood or trail ride.
The little boy in the video is amazing! Made me grin to watch him ride, grin more to hear him talk. Loved the 'yes, m'am", garsh, isn't he adorable?? A perfect match and a good example of what to look for.
Horses like that aren't a dime a dozen, at least not in my neck of the woods. Here, most people will sell you whatever it is they think you want, don't stoop to drugging a horse and a good trainer is near to impossible to find. By "good", I mean one that has YOUR best interest at heart, not theirs.
Seeing that video just makes my day. Thanks for posting it!
