all women or just the ones that do not handle him properly?i'll pretend that wasn't a cattle prod aimed directly at me:-p
he does not like women in general - never has. I can take a man and a woman of the same equal "intermediate level" riding ability and he will listen better to the man every time.
he's a con artist. A horse that given an inch will take five miles.
he has never bucked, kicked and he never flat out tried to run away with my good friend. All he did with her was go into that beautiful rocking chair canter (he's a walking horse) and when he realized her 4'11" self couldn't control him, he turned into one of those old buick dynaflow transmissions that just kept going faster and faster and faster.
another good friend's 20 yr old son had a lot less riding experience than my tiny friend but he was able to gallop that horse in a wide open field and stop him without issue.
that's when I realized rusty will listen but he has his limits. Were he a man he'd be grabbing women by the hair, saying "ugh my wuhmahn" and dragging someone back to his cave:-p
What do you mean by "woman's instinct"?<sigh> that would be the "instinct" your mom had when you were growing up and she just knew you were about to do some dumb thing that would either get you killed or in jail.
my son used to tell everyone I "had eyes in the back of my head and knew what he was going to do before he'd even thought on it for too long" :-p
women just have a way of knowing things that men (by and large) cannot ferret out.
i attribute it to the fact that we are guided more by emotion and men are guided more by logic:d
Just curious ... I am a guy and unsure of what that entails
