    Agree with OP, and everyone else. My mare knows what "easy easy" means. Period. And she knows what WHOA means, period, full stop. She's way better...

Born in 1964, returned to riding in 2006 after a 25 year break. My original goal was to event -- at a low level -- before my body gave out. It did... so I now focus on enjoying my horse (a palomino Morgan mare born 1998) and dabbling in dressage and trail riding.
