So I'm 16, and I've been leasing my horse for almost four years.
I'm there every day after school, and I have been since November 2009.
She's only ever ridden by me or touched by me, unless I'm there and I say "hey _insert name_ wanna ride Alibi for a little bit?"
I don't know if she distrusts other people, or if she's just stubborn, or just not understanding their cues.
I can have her do shoulders over, disengage her hips, flex, back up, side pass, half pass, on her and on the ground.
I've never seen anyone able to do this!
She won't trot or canter for other people either, just paces around with her ears pinned and her head up.
So what is that? I feel so dumb for asking!
Also to add.. I screw with her a lot, I sit on her backwards, on her butt, ride sideways, slide off her butt (yes I know it's not safe for either of us) but I do stuff to her all the time
I put my hoodie on her head the other day, and I pulled it down over her eyes so she couldn't see at all, and I lead her around on the ground. She was slow, but willing, especially if I was talking.
I let her go around me in a circle and she bumped her nose on my arm and she made the funniest little snort and backed up. Too cute.
There was a lady at the barn and she said "she must really trust you, letting you do all that stuff to her"
But I kinda don't believe it, I think my horse just doesn't care about what's being done to her.
I live to ride and I ride to live
Horses are just angels without wings
