I've got a mare that the trainer isn't comfortable with riding yet, but she has never done that. Of course, she didn't come to me with "the reputation of being a "skitzo" horse just throwing anyone who got him".

Either the description you gave is inaccurate, or you have a horse that many would not consider suitable for a 3 year old.

Since you don't know what spun him up, how do you know he wouldn't go "skitzo" with the 3 year old? If he had behaved for 4 months and then freaked, why would an hour of good behavior convince you he was bombproof?

Regardless, only owning him for four months and you buying him with the reputation that he had, a green, especially young rider should not go on that horse period.

Not to mention that fact that he hadn't been worked in 2 days, and it was storming outside.... I would be careful with things like that, there are liability issues with horses.

A horse is the projection of peoples' dreams about themselves - strong, powerful, beautiful - and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.

There are only 3 people that get on my 3 year old. Me, my trainer and a good friend who is quite experienced. While Hunter is very calm for the most part he has bucked (twice) and reared a few times. I would not put an inexperienced rider or a small child on him at all.
