Horses/horse responding to the rider

Question
hello. do horses get used to one rider if he/she rides daily and would they respond to that rider only? or a horse responds to any rider?

Answer
Rohit, the answer to your question is that if a horse is well broken and trained they should respond to any rider. If the horse gets used to one rider, they develop a relationship and the horse may respond better to that rider, but should still respond to others.
