This horse is lucky he has found you. He seems to like and respect you, not that he won't try to stand up to you from time to time. One only hopes he will continue to be your friend and partner, because I have found that slaves make poor jumpers.
he does have MAJOR in front of the leg issues which we work on constantly..haha he was actually going really well until I broke my arm & couldnt ride for 2 months, then it was like starting over. I doubt I will ever do jumpers with him, he's not that fast/ground covering, but possibly hunters or eventing. He really likes xc, but is still pretty green at it bc he used to not trailer or trail ride so it was hard to get him out. He does both now though !

His owner is actually a very popular dressage trainer in the area. She is thinking about selling him because he is not what she thought he would be. Its been pretty difficult lately, bc when I couldnt ride she decided she didnt like the program, so now we are not on the same page. She pays for me to have lessons with this trainer though, which helps because she can hear right from that trainers mouth what her horse needs.. [if that makes sense]

Lol at your last paragraph !! He loves to see what he can get away with, I like a horse with a mind though, I can never see him being a slave !
