    I'm the exact same way. I'd rather have a "damaged" horse any day. It honestly makes it hard for me to ride "nice" horses as I get rather bored. I'm putting training rides on a couple horses for one...

    I feel like it's related directly to horse confirmation/rider confirmation. On my old mare I could easily and comfortable keep my elbows pinned to my side. With my current OTTB if I do that it's just...

    I generally cold hose my guy for a bit concentrating on his legs. Sometimes I'll rub liniment on some muscle groups (hips, neck etc) since he is a rehab case and we're working on building a topline....
