Sounds like a carbon copy of my experience - but my horse WAS the demo horse. I think his apprentice heard me tell my mom "So help me GOD if he does to my horse what he did to demo horse #1".
But Cowboy was just soooo good in that arena, despite his constant looking my way, as if to say "Can we go home now? He's boring."
The only time Cowboy was halfway entertained in that arena is when Clinton was all "Horses are herd animals and copy what the other horses are doing! So if Nelly says 'OMG there's a bear, Tonto here (yes, he called my **** horse, Tonto.) is going to do the same thing!!!" At which point, Clinton was running all over the place and Cowboy's just trotting behind him like "LOL, you're drunk!"
I've got a lovely bunch of Neuticals,
There they are all standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head
