Twister Rush- She's 16hh, and no, you didn't miss it. I forgot it:)
Sillybunny-I've never sold a horse without a buyback clause, but so far, luckily, no one has felt the need to sell a horse I've sold them.
Everyone-retraining is definitely in the offing starting in January. I anticipate having about 8 months to get her restarted in something a bit more pedestrain than racing, so she probably won't be a "finished" horse, but I intend to take her to a few schooling shows, and basically just get her going in the right direction. She's fun, sound, and really easy to train, so I think she'd be a fantastic horse for someone who wanted to do intermediate level competition, once she's been retrained. I would start retraining her now, because she's already been off the track for well over a year, it's just I don't really think I can work around the fact that she has a foal. Hmm.
I think jumping would be an option for her, but as sillybunny said, I'm not sure about time constraints, especially since jumping isn't something you want to do with a horse every day. I've always known that I'm just going to have to see how it goes with her, but it never hurts to get an outside perspective, and possibly some creative ideas.
In the meantime, what do you guys think of her conformation? She's got a few faults, but what is your overall impression?
Peace, Love, and Ponies of all shapes and sizes.
