Though I don't have my own horse yet, there are lots of horses I've clicked with.
Rupert.. was always just a lesson horse, did what you wanted, didn't pay much attention, didn't really care. But when I rode him, he focused. He fallowed me everywhere, did whatever I wanted, tried his best for me, and listened to me so well.. I think I fell in love when we were cantering 2'0 verticles and no matter how horrible I did, he jumped it over and over and over, eager every time. He's amazing. <3
Rodger.. ridden twice, have a bond with him. The first time I rode him he was really good, but I was nervous and resisting too much. He was green/still is green, and I was too nervous to do anything right for him. He stuck it out, though. I agreed to school him some other time but had no intention of riding him again. So, I come to the barn on Wednesday and they told me to ride him. I got on and he was REALLY skiddish the whole time, bolting and spooking but for some reason, I knew he was trying for me. When I cantered him, he galloped off bucking and stuff, and I fall off ALL the time, so I was prepared to fall.. but I didn't. I stayed on the whole time and then it kinda fell into place, and I realized I COULD ride that pony. That eventually, I could train him to do what I wanted and he WOULD stop messing around with me eventually, because I could ride him. Now I'm dying to train him, though cantering him is still veerrry scary.
Milo.. I kinda just fell in love with. He was bad but I loved the idea that I was training another horse, after my last one was sold. I was just so happy to say, "Oh, Milo's training is going well" or, "I'm schooling Milo next week." I loved to hear my instructor tell me how there were people he wouldnt' do anything for, and that I rode him better than anyone else. I just rode him and rode him and rode him... and though he always tried to throw me, or did throw me, I wouldn't give up on him. In my mind, he was my horse, I guess.
Phoebe, my favorite horse EVER, may she rest in peace.. She used to respond to my voice and I was sure that though she was crazy, if I got on her she'd be perfect. She was great with me on the ground and loved me... It was just a great experience for me, having a horse favor me like that.
