Even though this thread has gone on for ages and also seems to have gone off topic, I have to put in my two cents.
Morganshow, I understand that you ARE young and all you want is to have fun, but you need to teach your horse (and yourself) the basics.

If being in an arena gives you too much temptation to jump and run barrels, take Rowdy out onto a trail. It gets you out of the environment, but you can still work out there. Practice halting (with your hands DOWN please!), practice transitions, do everything that you SHOULD do in an arena but in a different environment.

I know you didn't want critique, but please, please, PLEASE get that bit out of his mouth! It is COMPLETELY un-necessary, and something like a double-jointed snaffle would be much nicer for him.

Please listen to the advice, people aren't deliberately picking on you, they are just sharing their concern about your safety and that of your horse.

Good luck

I post, not because I care for the rider - because I really dont - I care about the horse.

The horse is the most important factor here in my books - beacuse

1) He did not ask to be bought by Morgan

2) He does not ask to be ridden by her

3) He has no flippin clue as to what is going on and what she wants, while he tries very hard to accomodate her

4) He continues to get punnished through her ignorance daily when she is on his back - he is so confused and saddened - it makes me sick

5) He tries so hard to make her happy, but she continues to hurt him

6) The one in the end who ends up getting the ultimate injury, is Rowdy

So what is to happen to this poor horse in the end when Morgan cannot get it out of her head that it is all his fault and his issues? Where do you think he'll end up?

Because of that, I care - beacuse of that, my heart aches, because of that I post, for the horses sake. The innocent blood in this picture.

OK guys, I think the point was made enough times so it's time to close this thread.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
