As some may remember I had a problem with my recent trainer/friend. Long story short I decided to finally move my mare and find myself a different trainers. I'm super excited... However I'm also sad and a bit confused on what to do. Now that my old trainer is out of the way and I've had time to reflect these last few months I've realized I got tricked into buying a horse that I don't think will keep me happy. Problem is... I fell in love with her the day I rode her. I wanted a gaming horse at first, but soon realized I should take it slower and get a western pleasure horse. When I rode my mare I loved how she moved and her puppy dog personality, my trainer completely assured me she was a definite western pleasure horse! As time went on she urged me more and more to try English hunter under saddle and than finally after 4 months admitted me my 16.1hh mare wasn't a western pleasure horse, but a great hunter horse. I'm moving her to a HUS barn because after talking to many others who know my mare they have all told me the same... She's no western horse and definitely no gaming horse! I'm going to give HUS a try, but I've grown up a western ridder and just don't know. I fear selling her is in my future and it breaks my heart! After 15 years of dreaming of my first horse and finally owning her I may have to say goodbye. I think this was more of a vent, I'm not really seeking advice, but I wouldn't mind hearing what others think.
