GH....notice something? Muppet and the other reiners obviously haven't dealt much with " the free spirited arabian horse"....
But it was a serious statement. I started a youngster once, longed him. Two laps, then he handed me the longe and said" you run in circles, I'm not stupid".
I would really like to hear what people who trained reining Arabs say about what to look for and what to avoid at all cost. I can imagine training one is not without problems. Too much pressure and they freak, too little and they " dance on your nose" as we Germans say.
I think somewhere along the line of Muppet's approach....?
