Well congratulations I didn't get my first horse until last year when I turned 16 and before that I only got to ride friends horses on occasions so your quite lucky. There is a lot more having a horse then knowing how to ride like feeding, grooming, basic handling, noticing illness or injury and knowing what to do in each situation keeping all the gear and its stable/paddock clean, etc. Books can help but they can't teach you everything.

My two horse Apache and Sammy are my world
along with our dogs Patch and Bear.
But I will always love you Jimmy R.I.P

Please discuss with the horse's owner before teaching the horse any tricks (or anything else). Many people do not want their horses doing tricks.

Rule 1 of leasing is remembering the horse is not yours so it is best to get permission for big things that are different than the norm.

I agree. Would you know what it looks like when your horse founder's or something is wrong with it's hoof or leg? Or when it colics? Would you know what to do? Books can't teach you everything.

the horse has never foundered or anything wrong with the hoof or leg and she has never had colic she has had like nothing and she has no shoes or anything so i don't have to worry about lose shoes causing founder or anything like that

Fuadteagan sort of mentioned this... But I believe the horse would be staying at the place it's currently at. I'm sure theres enough people around that Fuadteagan won't have to have 100% responisibilty (as in, if the horse seems sick/hurt there are other more experienced people around to help make decisions in calling the vet etc.)

That is kind of what I am talking about. Loose shoes don't cause founder.
