Hi Everyone, I am a new horse owner and joined these forums to help us with our adventure. We purchased a 6 year old mare quarter horse. She has a lot of good traits, she will follow us around the coral, let us pet, brush and rub her to our hearts content. She seems to be the most gentle creature you could ask for, until you go to ride her. We run her out before we saddle, but she has a nasty habit of letting you get settled and comfortable and then taking off on a dead run that you can't stop until she's good and ready. After she gets that out of her system she's great. However she did this with my husband last night and ran straight into a fence with him, so we are scared to put our kids on her. She also has a complete come apart if you take her very far from home, the day we brought her to our house she was awful. We have only had her for a week. I am wondering if those of you with more experience would recommend we work with her or should we take her back and look for something more suited to new horse owners? Thank you for any advice or help. Lana
