    Well that's just what she has been since I went to college last year; I want to be honest with people in the ad! She is basically just rideable. She can turn, stop, and back. I broke her to ride the summer before I went to college and never got to finish her. She's technically been for sale ever since, but ads expire and I don't always pay to have her picture posted. She's got all the potential in the world, but I guess that's not what people pay for.

    Sky, you have been a big help! I have to get her respecting me on the ground before she will ever respect me in the saddle. I will work on her ground manners and teach/re-teach her that you're supposed to move awayyy from pressure, not into it lol If someone came along to buy her today, I'd have to let her go, but if I can work with her this summer I'd love to see her start showing some of her potential. She's already burned through more hay than she is worth, what's a few more months? Lol

    She could be a wonderful mount if you work with her this summer. :)
    Potential is nothing unless you can bring it out of her.. my horse sat around in someone's pasture for years having "potential" and now his potential is turning into talent.

    If you need any other help or encouragement, hit me up!

    Trained
    I've just sold a couple of really nice, well trained but lacking miles, trail horses in the last 3 months. A year ago I'd have stuck a $1500 price tag on them and waited a few months to get my price. I sold each of those horses for $600, one of them actually had a show record. Neither had any serious conformation flaws and both were extremely sweet and both were registered. Sometimes the only way you can win is to lose. Lose the feed bill, the vet bill and the farrier bill and you can stop losing money.

    If anyone cares, I sold her tonight for $1,200. I wasn't expecting the people who came to look at her to bring a trailer so when they bought her it all happened kind of fast :-/ I'm going to miss her, I didn't think I would be upset but I cried when I handed her over to the new owners... and again when I got inside... and again when I went to check on Snickers and saw the two rubber feeding buckets... Guess I only need one of those now :-/

    However, after the comments I got on here, I am very thankful for the price I got! They people were great and said I could visit her anytime I wanted, and that they would send pictures and updates. The only thing I am worried about is the daughter they bought Fancy for is pretty green herself :-/ Green+green=usually not good! I made sure they understood she needed work and they even experienced some of her rude manners so I know they understand... She will be boarded at a barn that has lots of experienced riders that they said could help her though. I just hope she ends up working out for them.

    I hope so too! Green on green is tough, but if I can do it.. other people certainly can. She seemed lovely in your video though!

    Sorry it was hard on you.. she'll be very grateful to have another fab owner though!
