    Hi Ms. Gerdes –
    I contacted you back in December about doing a refresher with my Lippizzan. I apologize for not getting back with you…..my schedule continues to get worse and worse.
    I am impressed with your background and really think you are the one I would like to work with her. You understand the breed.
    I don’t want someone to “cowboy” her. While she is my first Lippizzan, I already know just how unique her personality is when compared to the quarter horses I grew up on. She is in a category all her own.
    I have to be honest and tell you that for the first time in my life, I have a horse I do not trust. Her name is Mistenia and I have had her for 2 years and never ridden her. She was trained by a Mennonnite up near Sedalia and her original owner used Parelli techniques with her.
    She kicked me the 2nd day I had her home, and I have not trusted her since.
    We have done all of the ground work in the round pen, saddled up and everything, but I just cannot bring myself to swing up into the saddle.
    I know ideally that you want to work with both horse and rider, however, I NEED to see that someone else can get on her without getting hurt before I can feel comfortable enough to do it myself.
    I cannot afford to get hurt and time is a rare commodity for me. I am a teacher and also do all the paperwork for our concrete construction company and the cattle herd that we run.
    Please tell me what your thoughts are on how I should handle her. I want nothing more than to be able to ride and bond with her.
    Thanks for your time.
