    What to choose...

    I am currently in a sticky situation where I have two horses that both need lots of work. My Quarter horse needs to be broke and my mustang needs to be trained on barrels. This isn't bad, except the only thing my Quarter horse will be able to do is trail ride, and I hardly ever do that anymore since barrel racing and showing take up almost all of my weekends. I would like to get a finished barrel horse to ride and take to rodeos and barrel races until I get my mustang finished out. If I did though, I would still ride that horse and my mustang. However, my friend has been letting me ride her barrel horse because she got a new one. I really like riding him, but he's not mine, so I can't take him where ever whenever I want. This means I have two options:Break my Quarter Horse, sell him, and buy a finished barrel horse and finish out my mustang or, break my Quarter Horse, keep him, ride my friend's barrel horse, and finish out my mustang. I love my Quarter Horse, he's my baby, and if I'm not going to really ride him, I need to sell him, but I really just hate to! Opinions please!!

    Sounds like a tough decision. Hard to tell without knowing you or your horses :( good luck

    Unfortunately I would probably train up your quarter horsr and find him a good trail home. While horses can be juat fine not doing anything I think you'd ve better off finding him a good home so you can find your barrel horse.

    I'm going to train him either way, and I think you're right. But it's hard to find people around here that would actually ride him while taking really good care of him too. He had a tendon injury and I don't want somebody trying to do anything besides trails on him.

    Hmm well many horses come back fully from tendon injuries my arab does endurance and gymkhana and he had a tendon injurie from racing. However I know how you feel I need to find something easier on my back but in worried aboit him ending up in wrong hands.

    He really needs to go back to the vet so he can check it out. But he still favors it sometimes so I don't think I'll ever barrel race him, just to be on the safe side.
