Ok, I know the whole magical “bonding” with your steed is 99.9% myth. But I think there’s .01% truth to that stuff. Ever had a horse you just don’t click with? Not like a training issue , just plain personality clash ? I’ve got one. Everyone says I look great on her, that she goes better under me than anyone else I’ve put on her . I showed her in her first show over fences ( her first show ever actually ) and placed in every class. She didn’t put a hair out of line. I seriously despise the horse. And have it on good authority the feeling is mutual. Really don’t look forward to going to the barn and dealing with her. There’s no scratches or cuddles or treats . She isn’t game for it either. We just don’t like each other. It’s not a partnership , more like a business transaction. Can’t put my finger on it . We work out our grumpy female issues and get shtuff done. I like her build and movement well enough. But something’s missing . Of course the reason I haven’t resold her is that her temperament isn’t ..... isn’t exactly a shining example of what I like to proudly advertise with my name on it . So a less marketable horse like her is what I’ll usually keep back for myself . I sell the really good ones lol. Anyone else have this ? Or am I just losing my marbles ?
