I haven't ben on for a long time. Been so busy.

Yesterday the chiro was out. Lakota's pelvis was out of place but she watched me lunge him and stuff and after I talked to her and told her about his..."episodes" she said that even with 25+ years of experience, she would not get on him and ride him. She said he needs professional training before I get on him. It was pretty disappointing, I mean we've come so far and...I don't know I just feel like a failure now. Like everytime I thought we were improving, it wasn't good enough. I actually started crying when she told me because it hit me hard. He means the world to me and...God I'm so a failure. I can't stop telling myself that. I've got a sick feeling in my stomach. =(

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

Bucks, kicks, rears, at one point he thought he was a rodeo bronc and did all 3 but also refused to stop. He's a sweet boy and we were making some great steps forward from where he'd been. I mean, 30 days training as a 2.5 year old then nothing til last summer? Plus, abusive home? I think I just need more time with him but if the vet thinks he's "dangerous, stubborn, and a horse who has ignorance perfected" than I guess he is.

This picture made me feel better. Scott sent it to me. I have great friends.

hmm well I'm not sure. I have a rearer and he has bucked. I also have an instructor to help me. Do you have someone more experienced helping you? I'll add it has taken me nearly a year to even ride my horse again simply because he was too much for me. It also took me a good 6 months at least before I truely got anywhere with him on the ground. Now he still has his moments but after all the groundwork I did with him he has big respect for me. Somehow we have a mutual understanding a bit like people finishing eachothers sentences. If that makes sense

Occasionaly but for the most part, no. He'll buck at transitions, like he won't go into a trot without putting up a fight. He's never thrown me but he can get naughty. And Lakota's very dominate and if there's another horse in the arena with us, he pins his ears and tries to go after them.

well my boy has never gone after a horse when ridden unless it was right next to him and that was only once. Apache is also very dominant. Weird part he is the only horse I have that I have never fallen off of but at one point he was the only horse I was scared of.

aww don't say your a failure you're definately not!
Sorry, I don't really know much about training horses. I guess I can say that whenever Cheyenne throws a buck or anything I just take a deep breath and try it again and repeat the process. I don't know. That's just what I do :) Good luck with your horse and remember: your NOT under any circumstances a failure ;)
