your horse is not a dirtbike peeps. it has feelings. be kind. I have a mare that was not shown affection much for a good portion of her early life. From what we can tell, she was worked hard and not LOVED. She is the sweetest thing, very cuddly once she trusts you. so desperate for the affection she didnt have before. That just goes to show that petting your horse and stuff like that DOES mean something to them! ugh.
