    Well firstly what SD posted wasn't an analogy, it was a statement.

    And like I said in the post I quoted, we'll continue to offer advice as long as its asked of us, regardless of whether or not she takes it into consideration. Maybe one day she'll grow up and decide to practice proper horsemanship - and lucky her, she's got 10 threads that tell her how to solve every problem any horse has ever had. ;]

    If you feel like you're wasting your breath, you needn't post.

    You are indeed wasting your breath telling us not to post our advice.

    And I hadn't said anything about it after she said it wasn't.
    Good to know,and I'm sure that once this has gone on another 15 threads, you'll still be giving your thoughtful advice.

    I'm positive that you don't need to hear the same advice 25 times.

    At least I hope.....

    Though its great to see it in hundreds of different ways in many people's points of views. Makes it an even better way to memorize it and get it through to some people who actually listen and want to take it and get some where with it .

    I do have to agree with you there.

    Rowdy has to be one of the sweetest horses ever! I am amazed at young inexperienced riders on untrained horses riding w/o supervision. I guess I was really lucky to have a mom who knew horses and made sure we got the basics from the best instructor around and never ever let us ride unsupervised until we were really solid and older and mature.

    Morganshow obviously loves riding and wants to do so many things but doesn't seem to be able or willing to find someone to assist. Yes it does seem to be a waste to post to her especially when she posts such a upsetting video and then says but don't critique.

    The horse is terrified but willing and sweet at the same time. With proper training and riding that horse would probably be a gem. Sadly he will probably end up blowing up one day out of sheer frustration and someone will get hurt and then an adult might finally step in and say we have to put the horse down or get rid of it, etc. I would put Rowdy in a snaffle and do nothing but walk quietly for weeks on end until he learns to relax and trust. I would hire a trainer or trade him for an old school pony. I hate to say it but I don't blame morganshow as much as I do her parents... where are they?? Horses are not toys they are loving wonderful animals that should be appreciated and loved and not used for our amusement. I know Rowdy is loved but it sure doesn't show in the way he is being treated. Sorry know this post has gone on enough but had to say my peace.

    WOAH!
    I feel soo sorry for rowdy!
    You really should listen to what people here are telling you to do. They have gave great advice and aren't being mean. They are just concerned for your horse and you.
    You clearly are hurting him and that's the reason why he's acting the way he is. Poor Rowdy :( . You have told us many times that you were not going to use harsh bits on him anymore but you clearly have been lying since in this video your using one.
    And I'm sorry, but I see nooooo Friesian in him!
