Young Horse

Should you get a young horse?

Are you a fairly confident rider, with the ability to go with the flow?

Do you have patience, a sense of humor and time?

Do you have loose goals and a willingness to be flexible?

Can you let a horse move out, let go of the reins, and relax about what’s out of your control?

Do you understand or have help with developing a young horse systematically and fairly, over time?

If you can’t answer yes to these, I would seriously encourage you to reconsider.

To me, there is nothing so sad as the confidence of a young horse squashed by a fearful rider defending themselves against the antics of a young horse.

And, there is nothing so beautiful as watching a young horse blossom under a tactful rider.
