The thought has been crossing my mind since last fall, so this is not a new thought (for me) by any means. At first, I didn't mind all his energy, but now I'm kinda wanting my old Beau back, who was laid back and like a western pleasure horse most of the time, yet could still clock a good time. And as Red's training has gone on, he's going to be a free runner. I am a very "pushy" type of barrel rider, so I think I need to find a push-type to best suite my rider preferences.
Love him to death, but I only have room for 2, so I couldn't possibly get another one and keep him at the same time.
Sad decision, but I do feel good about it, so it must be the right one!
Lucky thing is, I just listed him for sale yesterday, and I already have someone coming to look at him. She sounds like a nice lady, so I'm hoping its a good home he goes to *if* she likes him.
Anyway, just wanted to share.
