Maybe the guy lied, maybe he didnt...In Ref to how well the horse was trained
When I talked to the guy about the horse upon 1st seeing him, he told me the horse didn't have any problems. I rode the horse that day at his house and he rode fine. Now I know ofcourse like anything else, the horse has to get used to you, used to his new home, surroundings, and such. I have had him for about 2 wks. Tuesday will be 2 wks. I'm sure that horse knows that over here, he is getting better taken care of and fed well because the other people had 5 horse. From the first time I saw him at their place to the time I picked him up, he had lost some weight. Now he has the weight back on him in under 2 wks.
Anyway, I noticed first time I rode him here, he seemed to have barn sourness. I still managaed to ride him for a good 30 minutes around my area but he seemed he didnt want to go this particular direction. I think this guy has a stud horse up there. He starts whinning and smelling and seemed to be getting jumpy and nervous the closer he gets and doesn't want to go further. The guy also has a mare and a colt, and some other mare strange looking horse. Its about a mile if that, from me. My horse also yesterday , 2nd time riding him at my house, he seemed he didnt want to ride at all after first few minutes, maybe first 5 minutes. I'm gona get my dad over here today and we are gona check him out real good, making sure the saddle and bridle fits well enough and isnt causing problems. Everything looks fine to me though as far as that. He just seems stubborn and moreso yesterday.
If it turns out he needs more training, I will have to see about getting someone to come over here and work with me or take him there and let them work with hiim some.
