I can't see why it would not be worth it. Even if it's a no, you will have a chance to ride the horse, which sounds like a thrill in itself.Is this worth it for me to even go try the horse? What do you all think? Do some people with a horse like this--and professional photography sessions with it and showing at this level, really not mind if someone likes me comes out to ride their horse? Is she desperate for money? Do you think the horse will be safe? He's kind of young, and large and that part makes me wonder too.
You won't know why she is asking for what she's asking unless you ask her.
Personally, I would not let anyone ride my performance horse who (1) did not ride at least on my level, (2) did not ride in my discipline and (3) did not show at all. Not that my mare is the end all and be all of cowhorse or is so highly trained, but she is very sensitive to cues and doesn't like people hanging on her mouth or riding tight - it would make her nervous and make the rider nervous which makes her MORE nervous. And if they accidently cued her to do something fast and furious - yeah, would not be good thing.
Still, that doesn't mean the horse you are talking about above would not be tolerant of a rider with different skills. The horse may be perfectly find with it. Go and try it. :thumbsup:
