Your comments about building trust and being partners with your horse
were terrific. That's what makes our adventures so meaningful is that
bond that you develop with your horse. It's sad to witness some of the
things that happen when some people feel the need to dominate, rather
than work with, their horse. Nothing is gained; it's just a lose-lose


> Life is dull when not living on the edge!!!

How very true!!! Sometimes I think I live "on the edge" too much, but
have to say, life is never dull!

Your comments about your wife's horses and the challenges involve
reflect much of what goes along with the Arabian breed. Their traits can
make them totally unsuitable for some riders, while many of us enjoy
these same traits. I've ridden lots of different breeds of horses, and
have been bored very quickly with those who did not have the spirit and
zest of the Arabians or half-Arabs.

Also, for what it's worth, of all the times I've been injured or had
accidents with horses, at least half of these were NOT with Arabians.
