Goodbye...

So this is a video I made of my lease horse that I have been leasing for about a year and although he will still be at the barn I am buying a horse and will not ride him as often anymore.

what a great video you did! I own four horses and have one boarded here. I got back into horses after over 30+ yrs. Of being away from them, family/life....I have a 10yr. Old appy gelding I've had since he was 6 weeks old ( his Mom was here with him when he first came), then I got a 3yr. Roan mare who is going to be 11 this year, she had a foal who is going to be 4 this year and I've just started him last fall under saddle and then I have a 17 or 18 yr. Old ex-barrel racer mare which was left to me by my best friend who passed away last year. The boarders horse has been here since he was 6 months old and he's going to be 5 in March.......hopefully I will never have to sell any of mine, when my husband and I talked about me getting horses we had agreed this would be their forever home.......

My horses are the joy in my life.....

A lot of memories in that video-the two of you did a lot together. Glad you will still be seeing him-he's a cutie. Hope things go great w/your new horse.

I tried typing a message from phone but I guess it didnt go through, but tomorrow I am going to look at four new possible horses! On my youtube channel there is a video of two of the horses that I liked, Buster (the grey) was kinda old and reaching the end of his career, and Quincy had a bone chip that was bothering him and made it hard for him to jump, but I hope the new guys look good!

Congrats on getting your own horse! My mom had horses all her life until she got married and had kids. Ever since I could talk and think rational thoughts I've wanted some. Then 2 years ago I finally got into it thanks to luck and dogged determination! Now I've got 3, and I just got the latest little girl last week. Instead of buying great quality stock I've been drawn to broken down rescues. So while my first mare might not technically be counted as a rescue, my other 2 fillies are and I love them all the pieces. Makes me feel good taking in horses in need and turning them into something that someone else didn't give them the chance to be. Altogether only spent $150 on the actual horses themsleves! Ha!

Tack though... that's another story, if you know what I mean.

Keep us updated on your horse search! I love hearing when people get new ones, especially their first. And don't make it seem like goodbye to the horse you've been riding! Like you said, he'll be around, and there's a special bond there.

Whoever said a horse was dumb, was dumb.
If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question or asked the question wrong.

I know how sad it can be to have to leave a lease horse behind. I tried to buy a horse I leased for several years at one point, but his owner seriously overpaid for him and wasn't interested in giving him up. Then he had to go and chip off a piece of his kneecap and become unrideable for a while to boot. Even though I wasn't leasing him anymore, I continued to take care of him and watch out for him... no one else at that barn was.

A lot of other things seemed to happen all at once, but I ended up having to leave that barn and decided it would be the right time to purchase. It broke my heart to leave that lease horse, but for my own sanity I had no choice. His owner eventually moved him to her property, and I speak with her occasionally, so I know he's doing well.

I will say: I wouldn't trade my own horse for anything. Our bond keeps on growing, and I know this was what was meant to happen. :)
