That's why I gave her the sand idea. The horse can't hurt himself with that. And I'm taking it that her dad will help her. She's gotta start somewhere. We all need to get over what the horse was priced at and everything. The horse in this market isn't going to sell unless you can him. if people buy horses they want them broke. So instead of ripping her on the price, we need to give her a few pointers. Yeah groundwork and respect. But that isn't going to get a horse used to carrying weight again. If she has help from someone who kinda knows what they are doing, throwing some sand in an inner tube on a horses back isn't that dangerous.
~Started young horses in Bosca te Ador, unto the two rein the old Spanish spade, brought them along with two hands that were gentle. Some fine reining horses as ever were made~
