A woman at my barn used to ride as a kid, took her standard 15 years of so off to raise her family and is now getting back into riding as a 40 something year old. She fell in love with an OTTB. While they do have a noticeably good bond with each other, she's a fairly timid rider and he's quick to take advantage of her weaknesses. She seems aware that she's slightly overfaced and keeps asking me for advice and training help. I am not a trainer and am extremely lucky to have found an unusually sweet and willing OTTB for my own horse. Where I don't want to take on someone else's problems, I do try to help her keep her confidence up. Lately she's been talking more about doing more ground schooling with him. She's getting dangerously close to being one of those people who uses the idea of bonding with her horse to avoid actually riding it which the horse really needs. Does anyone have any advice on how I can get her butt back into the saddle? I think she's only at a slight disadvantage at this point, but that gap will widen a lot if this horse is not exercised properly.
