I don't turn down horses. I can't afford to and I think it's a bad habit to get into. All the horses listed above went home happy and well behaved but it would have been much easier on me and the horse and ultimately the owner if they would have either told the truth or said nothing. The horse won't lie for you. Within the first hour of the first ride I had alot of these horses figured out but alot can happen in that first hour that sets the tone for the next month.
So the point of all this ranting is to encourage those of you who are sending your horse to a trainer to be upfront with what you know about the horse and don't be afraid to tell the guy just how bad your horse is. If the trainer can't or won't be able to handle it then it is best you find out before you write the check.
