My horse which is 10 years old is fully broke, but she is attached to my gfs horse like crazy.. My gfs horse reba is the lead mare, I don't have a real tough time riding her away from the house, until we get half way around a block and she realizes that reba is not there, then she starts calling out, walking faster, weaving.. I jsut keep her moving, stop her when I want to stop. I can handle my horse, gf is actually more experienced than me on riding, but her horse whips around so fast that it throws her off... And yeah I understand about not riding them hard, and we don't.. we don't even trot her, we just walk, and her headset that is just normal, we didnt teach that. Both of our horses we rescued from bad situation, I know more about more horse than she knows about hers tho.. We were lied to about hers, and mine used to be a trail horse 5-6 years ago, and was rode in a reg curb bit. Mine is part tennessee walker/quarter horse. When we got her horse she was around 600# and we have had her for 8 months and now she weighs 900#. My horse tia is gaining weight, and is doing very nicely.. Acourse I don't use the curb bit, I ride sidepulls, bitless and she loves it.. She listens well, so yes I consider her all the way broke. She knew everything as soon as I put the saddle on. Asked her to trot, canter. Backed her up and she tucked in her head and backwards we went.. I call that a good horse.. Just got to work on the seperation ****!!!
