I spoke to my trainer today in earnest.
Don't shoot me.
I've given Duffy a good 7 months bringing her on, and training her. She's a fab horse. HOWEVER, my trainer feels that in the long run she is going to struggle in the dressage arena. She'll be able to do the moves, but build wise she's more jumper than dressage. And with her pigeon toes, she doesn't think she'll get there.
I need to start looking at this as a sport for me, and not a pet... and we're give her 6-8 weeks, good training, more canter work, and speak again, but I have a gut instinct this is where its going to go.
I'm just looking on the market at the moment to see what there is available. Ingrid reckons she'll sell for about 5000, I bought her for 3800, so not too bad. May even be cheeky and say 6, drop to 5500.. she has a nice personality ;D
But, looking at what is available on the market.. I could probably go up to 6000, or save for a while and go to 7/8000... IF I really saved.. but thats talking end of summer, and I don't know if I can be horseless that long!
Thanks for looking guys... no one to one swap there then!
And Anebel, I'm not so bothered about the age (providing its not just broken in at 10 muahaha) I'm looking for a project horse in the long run that I can do some dressage with... eventually!
Thanks for looking guys.
