It's kind of interesting how people have assumptions about horses and their training level based on certain things. Shay-la has a couple of mares that are almost bombproof trail horses, but in regards to ANY sort of riding from your seat or legs, they are as green as it gets. They only operate on clucking and pulling on the reins to go faster and slower. So really, all they're "trained" to do is not spook at rocks and mostly listen to their riders kicks or pulls.
It sounds like it's a good idea that Gidget is going for training to make the whole experience a lot happier for both of you!
I hope God tells her to smash her computer with a sledgehammer.
