Don't get me wrong I love fast speed event horses like
barrels, poles, speed, etc. but hyper horses or "hot horses"
as I refer to them sometimes agravate me. For instance it's
not even the horses fault most of the time it is the riders for
not properly training the horse and taking there time doing so,
a barrel horse for instance should be easy to control or any
horse for that matter. For instance at playdays I will be riding
and people and their spastic horses will get a little too close for
comfort when we are not even near them they come over while
their horses are head tossing and acting up and get our horses
who are in a calm state frightened or acting up as well.
Someone even brought a spastic horse like this on the trail ride
Saturday and spooked my mare who got off the trail and was trotting
through brush and could of tripped over a stump with me, lol.
BTW, I love speed myself and the horses I ride are usually
on good behavior. What I am saying is I just don't like it
when people bring horses to the arena not properly trained
and do not mind well and expect to win out there and not
correct bad behavior.
Sorry just a personal rant from experience, I don't like old dead
horses either, I like horses with a little spirit and get-up as well
but training and patience is important.
