OH, and would just like to add: I know a lot of horses who get upset and downright sulk if you don't take them out for a ride!!! (even horses with cruel shoes on their feet and horrible bits in their mouths) I hope that the girl comes to some realization soon before she gets hurt. It's dangerous to let 1,000 pound animals boss you around. I do believe in respecting them, but they need to respect you as well. MUTUAL RESPECT.
A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.
