I didnt 'attack' anyone. She got all egotistical when i said 'a few' horses refering to the horses she trained- i had no idea it was offensive - honest to god!

I think its silly that you keep sayin random things to stir the pot then say its me- no.. its you! Better watch out or ill 'call' you too!

Whats your credentials? How many wgc horses have you trained- owned- or shown? Whats their net worth? How much have they earned in their career? /life time earnings? What discipline? How many horses have you trained? why did you train them? How did you train them? Explain your training methods..

Ha, thank you. Well, none of mine fall into that category! I suppose I'm more interested in work ethic and usability over show titles. I want a good minded, honest, hard working animal. Not that show horses can't have those qualities- but in my mind almost anyone who trains a horse to have those qualities is probably a good trainer. A good horse is a good horse- regardless of breed, money earned, and show titles. understandably though, we all have different ways of getting there!

All their poop smells the same, that's for sure.

Toto, for the record, I am 54.

I made my ENTIRE living in the horse business for ~20 years and was quite successful at it, and have been involved with horses part-time the rest of my adult life. I am a certified instructor, and my students have won at A rated hunter shows, and up to the Prelim level at USCTA events. One A level and one B level Pony Clubber came out of my barn.

If you're interested in money winnings and have access to Equibase, look up Thirty Eight Go Go, a grade I stakes winner of over $800k - she was one of my many breakers who never offered to buck.

You are perhaps the third person I have ever called out and asked to defend their
experience in all my time on this forum. Now, there are a lot of people on this forum who misrepresent their skill level, or who give advice beyond their skill level. that's true of any online forum. I might gently question what experience forms their opinion from time to time but otherwise I pretty much let them be.

I'm calling YOU out because in my review of your posts, I haven't seen you post a single helpful thing. If you join a thread, it's to contradict excellent advice given by horsepeople I respect and to make trouble. You are consistently less than respectful, and you consistently fail to back up your opinion with anything other than more emphatically stated opinion.

I jumped into to this thread because you said, in regards to breaking and backing a horse, you expect them to try to get you off their back.

First of all, that's off topic. The OP asked about the advisability of breaking in a bareback pad, not how likely a horse is to buck.

Second, it's epically bad horsemanship. I have never heard a single horseman I respect say anything remotely similar.

Third, when I ask you to defend that opinion, I get a lot of bluster and bombast and counter attack. I still don't know your level of experience or even what discipline you purport to train in.

So based on the evidence at hand (still all hat and no cattle), at best, I think you are misrepresenting yourself. At worst, you're a troll.

Please feel free to prove me wrong, not by attacking me, changing the subject or derailing the thread, but by posting actual, reasonable experienced based advice in a respectful manner.

We'll wait.
