[RC] [RC] [Guest] bad behavior - Ridecamp Guest

Laurie Durgin

Funny I didn't want to mention my friends horse ,who is a 3/4 arab,1/4
saddlebred. . . Similiar problems.He wasn't shown (he is 7 now), but was
stalled 23/24.got 'crazy and was attacking people when he got
out.Rearing,biting,charging.His traumazation, was being thrown into trailers
when  a hurricane would come to evacuate. Owned bya an older gentlement who
was too afraid to ride him. Friend brought him up here ,turned him out for
months in a big pasture. Has had him to a  JL triner  and other non
resistance trainer ,used  him in a demo on trialer loading. He will load,
but then goes nuts while in trailer. He also weaves if left in stall too
much. Has had a couple riders (women,) one got a bit rough and he started
rearing. Owner stopped that. Has tried to be firm ,but kind. He loves to
trailride, but has more tricks. . .  I consider him real unpredictable and
dangerous.We both decided he is neurotic. But she feels sorry for him. She'd
like him to be a trail horse, but the trailer thing .So he just gets ridden
around the 40 acre barn they are at or in the arena. He does dump  his rider
when he spooks though.
Maybe it's the  lines  they bred too.You hate to generalize.
