- Thank you.... You are the fourth person to send me a private message over the past couple of days basically saying the same thing... I do wonder about some folks with horses and not only in your country but here as well..
I have found a way with horses that works for us and works well...
There is no quick fix with training horses as you will probably already know..
Nice to see you are mostly on top of your horses behaviour issues and hopefully you enjoy your horse riding..(smilies)
Thank you again for your post..
- People make up their minds without actually understanding or wanting to understand the point you're making sometimes you just have to walk away. I dont consider a horse that bucks, has an occasional rear or spook to be a problem horse. It does have the potential to be a problem horse in the wrong hands. These people have probably never had any experience of a real problem and hopefully never will. My sons mare threw a tantrum tonight as she wanted to do some jumping not flat work in the menage so she kept trying to bolt off - she isn't a bad horse she just has attitude. She is so strong that you can't hold her when she has a mood like this but you can talk her down really easily because we spent time on her groundwork.
You sound to be doing a great job in your own quiet way. If people were having so much success with these auction buys there wouldn't be so many going back.
