I know a young woman that has tried out 20 or more horses, does not want a show horse, just something to trail basically. She has someone along that takes videos.
In every single one, she has the reins so tight the horse is yawing at the bit, she has the riding skills of a wheelbarrow, and in a couple of the owners, they told her to come out and ride horse whenever she wanted to make it easier for her to decide.
If you comment that the horse seems unhappy about the deathgrip? Oh, she just wanted to make sure horse didn't run away. And most of the time she is in round pen or small arena to boot.
Nice horses, that the people want to sell, but she is wasting their time.
And sadly? There were a couple on there that I would have been interested in for a friend of mine, and one I would like to have looked at for me, but she won't tell you who has them, nor how to contact them.
She doesn't want them...but "might" change her mind.
Got bucked and broke arm, but back to looking again now that it will be spring soon....just wasting time.
