Sorry about my panic attack/pity party yesterday and thanks for listening ?reading? Anyway thanks for all of the advice.
I hope one day that you can! And it's okay, there was a few times I thought "jeez I shouldn't have this horse" for different reasons.
1. Poor ground and riding manners
2. I suck at riding and he's super duper amazing
3. He's green.. I'm green.. need I say more?
But I've moved past that. (passed.. past?? I have no idea..)
We worked through it. I've trained him every step of the way. He used to rear, bolt, kick, bite, charge, buck. Luckily very minimally for me but still.. I was nuts. Still am, but it can be done.
Just gotta figure out why she does what she does, and help her get past it.
