It can also be a training issue. I took in a mare for training that had already been through one trainer and got sent hom with that exact same issue. What he had done was taught her to run backward with leg pressure so....every time she spooked or balked or got stubborn and I put leg on her to ask for forward, she would take off running backward and the trainer forgot to install a "stop" button. Let me tell you, that was a bitch to train out of her. There were several times where she could have easily killed me if things had gone any way different than they did.

Sorry, but this made me laugh while I was trying to picture it in my head. But I would definitely agree that this would be a pain in the butt to deal with!

Our mare wasn't trained to run backwards (we bred and trained her) and she would do it while tied, lead or undersaddle.

Still haven't untrained my mom's boss mare from what some trainer had taught her to do. Major downside if you always use the corner of an arena to teach correct leads. No there is not a monster in every corner that we must hurry away from as we go past the corner...

OMG! Seriously? "If you don't take my horse by Wednesday I will shoot it?" And someone has flagged that ad for removal, does that mean whoever flagged it has given that poor horse the death sentence? That one and the stud one for 260, bring them both to my house I will rehab them and find them a great home, (and take the time to make sure its the right home!)

The flagger's really annoy me.
So if you don't like the ad, just move on, don't they realize they are removing the animal's chance at a better home?
