haha, that's true! O_o they'll probably slap a saddle on an unbroke three year old and send me out telling them he's 'a little green' XD
Glad I could humor you I guess ;) when I look back it really is comical just how many problems I always have with trail facilities. At the last one I went to, the mare was a scrawny little 'quarter horse' (NO way) with a huge curb bit, tie down, ewe neck, and the nastiest attitude towards other horses. She tried to kick the guide's horse's head in twice on that 45 minutes ride! Maybe I ought to just quit trying to find a good facility...lol
I do have to hand it to them, the place I went to this time DID care for their horses, even if they had some crazy bits, hot horses, and distasteful staff. All of the horses had custom tack labled just for them that seemed to fit them perfectly, and all were in gleaming good health even in the winter and mud. And the endurance saddles were to die for. I didn't agree with the fact that two were in Mechanical Hackamoors and the rest were in S hooks, but I guess they probably didnt want beginners ruining their horses. My mare was VERY flighty and high strung but I could tell she'd had a lot of training. Not just any horse sidepasses the second you ask it to after being on beginner trial rides all day. Its not easy to get a bolting horse under control in an s hook though, let me tell you. If only their service was as good as the facility itself looks!
