Yes, this is my first horse, and I have no experience at all. I do have a lot of friends that have horses that are willing to help me though. I wouldn't call Rain a problem horse, but she can be stubborn sometimes, plus she hasn't been ridden in over a year. Other than not letting me get on her there has been no other problems, she doesn't even mind me putting the saddle on her.
