My guy was from a sting- failed as a guest horse, always a guide horse due to being too spooky (read: not complete deadhead). He's been wonderful to retrain. Good temperament, willing, wants to please, not really hot, but only came with left, right, stop, go. Turning him was like turning a semi-truck, he had no idea leg could mean anything other than go faster, and asking him to move faster than a walk was more than his poor little brain could handle at first and he'd get nervous and rushy. Now he's wonderful. I'd take a string horse to re/upgrade the training on again in a heartbeat!

My trainer rode her today. She was looking pretty good out there in the arena. She did have to keep asking her to trot though. I guess she didnt have to do much trotting on the trails. So she would stop every now and she asked with the crop. Pretty girl.
