He knows that Dusty will be difficult and speed up to be ahead. I get onto him for never thinking about how his actions affect other people.. He obviously doesn't care.
Not to open a can of worms, but I would NOT be with someone who cared so little about my safety that they would put me in jeopardy, even after I told him that what he was doing could get me seriously injured or killed.

yeh sounds like a rude arrogant jerk, might be a wake up call for how he's going to act in other situations. To many decent guys in the world to put up with a jerk.

Wow...he sounds very immature. Hope you are never hurt by his stunts. If my husband did that to me he would be down the road kicking beer cans and picking buttercups. Well, maybe not...it would be hard to kick a beer can with a broke leg or pick buttercups with a broken hand.

I think I fixed the problem. Yesterday we went trail riding. He was galloping by like usual, and I let my horse run. I've never let him run full speed because he usually throws in a buck or two. But not this time. Dusty flew past my fiancé and his horse like they were turtles. His horse did NOT like that, so when he pulled her back she wouldn't stop. She was being difficult the rest of our ride, and it irritated him. Normally I wouldn't upset his horse like that, but now he knows how my horse feels and acts when he does that to him. The best part was HE apologized for that day because he knew why I did it.

I would still be really slow about getting married. He may be hard to retrain, though it does sound like you are making progress.
And get a prenup..........

Oh we're taking it very slow. We won't get married for a good two years at least. We're starting to learn a lot more about each other through planning a future together. A lot of feelings come out when you're picking a home that we'll build, and one of us doesn't like it. But I have to say, he s a calm person. If anyone blows up out of anger, it's me. He really is a caring person, also. I don't mean to put him off as a bad person. If he was, I wouldn't marry him. Riding horses is just that one case where I guess he doesn't understand that I am only 140 pounds of muscle and fat on top of a 1200 pound powerhouse. I think that he feels like I can handle my horse, and I can. But freak accidents do happen. I'm just more aware of that than he is. We broke down a major wall the other day and had a talk about how Dusty is sensitive about certain things, and he can't tell me when he's about to blow his lid. So I think that we have an understanding about trail rules now.

I suppose it could be that he thought it was more along the lines of tickling your foot or calling you a silly name. Men are hard to train................

My pet peeve is, riders behind me galloping past me without letting me know their coming.
