When I say I don’t have time, I mean that there are not an awful lot of years left for me to be doing this. I am 67, and the horse is 24. He (the horse) is just fine when riding with horses who live with us – it is larger classes or trail rides with strange horses that remind him of racing (in case you did not read that part, he is a retired racing Arabian). No trainer (and I have one) can do anything about my issues. I most likely need a psychologist to deal with it.

It is never the horse's fault
