Yea, got it :). I meant it's the way it shouldn't work but you should keep exercising the horse until it's really time to give up exercising and perhaps the horse too (based on the horse's condition, not years behind him or her).

ja lehahti sitten siivilleen, ja päästi pois kahleet.
Ja se loistaa, minne ikinä meen, se mukana kulkee

Decided to pony Sunny from Lex today. It turned from a lesson for Sunny into a lesson for Lex. It all started good, then Lex started acting a fool. Rearing, kicking, and bucking-all this with a 21 year old horse. I thought maybe Sunny was making him angry, but even after I let her go he still acted like a 2 year old. Sunny was acting better. -sigh- Guess i'm gonna try with Sista being the lead horse.

Sounds like a mare I used to have! Thank goodness she knew when to behave though or we would've been goners more than once

Yeah I agree with you. It's so hard NOT to tell that a horse has emotions too.

Horses have some emotions. Like loosing a best paddock buddy. When I had a horse I was lent out here, my QH turned into her best friend. When she left, he followed the float neighing. Poor thing.
They get scared of somethings, then act like a kid and follow you around, wide eyes, and snorting. "MUM?! Get it AWAY!"

I had an old horse. My second horse. I was told he was 13. He looked bad. But I was new enough that I didn't realize he was 25. xD
But he was perfect. Didn't show any pain at being ridden, and if I didn't go for a ride for 4 days or so, he'd come down to the gate and wait for me.
We even did Pony Club!
But when we got him, he had the worse sway back, claws for hooves, and was tied up to a power pole with no food or water, in the middle of summer, 'cose they didn't want to catch him when we came out to look at him. Poor thing was a giveaway.
But I'm glad I got him. He was my second best horse.

Oh, didn't realize I wrote this much. xD

Yep...I almost failed Bio in 9th cause I argued the fact that animals had emotions and my teacher got all mad that I was defending a 'creature.' >_<

Hehehee. Yep...I fell off my buddy Johnny- 19 year old Appaloosa gelding about 2 years ago and I will never forget the look he gave me when he took off and made me go flying. It was one of those heartfelt 'oooops, i didn't mean to...SEE my sad face?!' And then when Molly- my instructors 35 year old mare wasn't being ridden much, she got all depressed and started giving me the silent treatment per say because I wasn't able to ride her at the time. =P Horses have more emotions than a person I think.

Just finished reading/taking notes on Macbeth for AP English. Now I have to read and outline an entire mythology book. Darn summer reading.
