I do not ask my horse's permission to ride him, just as my supervisor doesn't ask my permission to do work for pay. Oh, no thank you, boss! I'd rather just sit her and play on the interwebz all day!

Are you serious?

If you have a good relationship with your horse, s/he ENJOYS working.

That's why most people don't like work :P So why don't we try & change our horses point of view? :)

Speed racer, I can't vouch for others but my horse thoroughly enjoys our sessions! If he didn't like it, then he wouldn't do everything he offers with such exubherance

I honestly have no idea what you're saying here.

I don't think most people hate their jobs, but I do think SOME people are spoiled little divas who think the world owes them a living.

Horsey, what do you call exuberance? If the horse has pinned ears and is giving you death looks that's not exuberance, that's annoyance. I've seen far too many skeeved off 'Parelli-fried' horses than not, because they're bored and simply just TIRED of doing the same, repetitive stuff over and over again.

There's a time to quit playing games and actually get on and RIDE the animal. You don't need to do however many 'games' there are every single time you take the horse out. For heaven's sake, get ON that animal and stop with all the silliness!

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

speed racer, you said how do you know if your horse finds it fun? And I said (or meant ;)) how do you know that they don't?

Perhaps she didn't train you correctly.

Yeah, maybe if she beat me with a crop for not doing it fast enough I'd get more out of it
