I hate my horse so much sometimes

Yep. He tried to throw me. I think. He kept throwing his head down and arching his back the way horses do before they buck and dancing around being very badly behaved. And I had to put his bit back in to get him to behave. Yeah I've been riding using just a halter and reins but then he goes and decides to be a bitch.
Then I went on a trail ride and he ran me into tons of trees! Not even kidding. There was this one part of the trail where it was a bunch of dead trees. No real path and he turns and runs right into them. He doesn't seem to realize my feet are in the stirrups ever. I think he thinks 'oh okay I can fit through here, and it's just me so why not'
Then I also hate my saddle.
My stirrups suck. I have big feet and small (ish) stirrups. My left one is usually fine but then my right one kills my ankle. I swear if I ride for like an hour, sometimes less, when I get I have to stand on my left leg for like five minutes. So yeah I need some better stirrups. And I don't think it's really cause my feet are too big because my friend who has tiny feet had a problem with them too.
