I think you missed my point. The OP is basically saying the people who bought and sold this mare were bad people because they did not provide the mare with a long term home. How dare they sell her, etc.
But the OP sold the mare and is now wanting to sell her other horse to buy this one back.
I have no problem with the OP's idea (other than I think she is living in a teenager induced black stallion world), I have an issue with her attitude towards the other people.
I don't want to rewrite what I said in the previous post for me blaming the owners, so look up there. Hehe
I am not going to sell my horse, I was going to possibly sell her if I wanted to go in higher competitions, since she can't be ridden alot. But, I am not at the moment, so we will be fine. I don't think I could handle selling her. But, at times I do think she would enjoy it to be with a family with kids who just rides every so often for pleasure.
I feel I am working her to hard, and she isn't enjoying it that much.
I am not in that world you think I am in, no where near it.
You have to understand that when I was typing the first post, I had just seen the ad, and I was frustrated and upset because I just wanted her to stay with one person and enjoy her life. Now, I don't blame them, I just am considering getting her back.
OP, I would like to know how you got into this position in the first place. Did you try "Hope" out before your parents purhased her? Why would you buy a horse not suitable for a beginner, let alone a green horse? Common sense should tell you to do otherwise.
No we didn't try her out because she was only 2 years old, and had little training. My parents got her for us for christmas, because as all first time buyers think "lets get a young horse, and it can grow up with our kids and it will be a dream come true" Our parents knew nothing of horses, and she was a beautiful, friendly horse, so they bought her for us.
I was only 8 or 9, and obviously we knew nothing about getting a first horse.
If we are considering buying her (she is a 13 hr drive away), we will go look at her, get them to ride her, I will ride her, check her over for soundness and health issues. And, if it seems like she will be alright to train and handle, then we will consider her.
