    Well, considering the limited amount of time you've had on her, I think she's probably bright enough to pick up each time, even if he can't ride every single day...I love horses like that! The two yearlings I'm working with are like that...I can teach them a new concept, let it rest for a day or two, and they pick it right back up like as if they just did it. I wish my knuckle headed App had that kind of smarts...Lol!!! Just goes to show how different horses are...

    Yeah, she is very smart. Not willing to buck either. I left her alone for 4 months and then just threw the saddle on her, lunged her a couple of circles each way, got on and away we went. The only thing that worries me is that she is more spooky when left alone for a couple of days and he is out of shape. A good rider, but he doesn't ride much anymore and I don't know if he can stick with her when she takes a big spook or not. What really worries me is that he is going to turn her out for a few months then catch her up and put his wife (very green rider) or one of his grandkids on her. I told him that she is nowhere near beginner safe and won't be for about 10,000 more miles, but I still worry. It's not that he doesn't have time, he is off work before 4 pm every day. He just doesn't take the time. He comes home and goes right in front of the stinking TV until bed time. I was hoping that telling him "She NEEDS ridden every day to keep her going" would make some kind of impact but I guess not.
