    I also have an OTTB although I didn't get him till he had been a school horse for a few years. I think what really connected us was that he really needed to be a 1 person horse. He really hated being a school horse so when I bought him he suction cupped himself to me within a week!! I had never had a horse bond so close to me so fast!!! I am not saying he trusted me completely, it still took lots of time with his spookyness because he was very spooky, but I could tell once we moved to a different facility how much he trusted me. My B/O thinks he is the cutest thing because he is just like a puppy the way he follows ya and will lick all over your jacket and hands. (he has never bitten anyone, but me, in the 3 years I have owned him. Lol and the 1 time he did bite me he was really mad!! (long story).
    Anyways I think they are 1 of the best breeds they are so loyal I will always have OTTB!!!!

    My OTTB is a big puppy dog too ... she loves to be as close to me as possible, even when things are scary which is so funny b/c she is so big and I can't hold her! Anywho I have always been a warmblood person but I love my OTTB more then anything! I am so blessing with a calm chill mare and wouldn't trade her for anything!

    Exactly, they need lots of time and attention. I got my OTTB gelding about six months ago and he started playing with me as the farrier was working on him. Big breakthrough, great joy.

    My TB is a sweetheart. She needs human contact a lot and is very bonded to me but very bratty as well, can we say spoiled? Never had a horse that needed so much attention, but she is a love when she is not acting stupid

    I have an OTTB who is 10 months pregnat. She really bonded with me and my dad! She also just needed a leader, because she wasn't getting leadership at the breeding place.

    Yes the definitely need to be "led" they can be pretty nutty otherwise, but they enjoy the human bond and will try to please
