Thanks everyone for your thoughts and trying to help me figure out what is going on with Romeo. It is bad when my riding buddy won’t ride if I take Romeo. Unfortunately she was there both times I got thrown. Luckily my daughters friend who is 23 LOVES Romeo and rode him quite a bit last year so she will go with me. It’s really upsetting that my friend and family that know how much he means to me would even suggest to me I need to get rid of him. I would never sell a problem horse to anyone, and I wouldn’t give up on him ever for what has happened. He is not doing it to be nasty, he is a great horse and has been good to me for years. I just need to figure out what is going on with him. I did notice this year he does seem more concerned with normal things he has always encountered no the trails. Even a bright/different colored plant he’ll look at like wth is that but not spook over it but just not like him. Think he could use a little decentising work would probably help also. I’ve always had compliments on him on the trails and have had several people offer to buy him over the years. I’ve also had quite a few fat jokes thrown his way. I say he’s just stocky ๐Ÿ™‚ He reminds me of a little elephant ๐Ÿ™‚
