Question by fadedoak: Why isnt my horse the “puppy dog” type?
I know it may be expecting too much from a leased horse, but I have been working with her for the last 3 years. And now finally lease her, but she doesn’t greet me, she recognizes me when I come in, she is a great horse, but I can help but be jealous of those who have the critters that are so socially welcoming.
I see her about 4 days a week, and am one of the 2 people she sees on a weekly basis.
I pride myself on being able to find the itchy spots on horses that cause them to lean over and twitch their lip, but I can’t seem to find hers for the life of me.
She is also on the older side of things, and I was curious if that puppy dog aspect just comes in younger horses.
Have done join-up, and when its too hot to ride, I just hang out with her in the pasture. We are working on tricks

… its not just riding.
I am glad some people have the same problem.
She was formerly a therapy riding horse (and I worked with her through that aspect, so I am sure I am associated with WORK) I am trying hard to break that and work with her on the ground and not always riding.

No some horses just aren’t like that. Some horses come with bigger personalities then others. Just like people some people arent overly affecotionate.
