I would never ever consider selling her. She is my first horse and I've got her when she was a little under 2. I'm the only person who has ever worked with her or ridden her. I have been training animals all my life and I know what I'm doing. I can't put her in a serious training program as I don't have the money and she is only 2 and a half. The lady who owns the place where I bored is helping me train her as well as helping me with my riding skills. I really just want to learn how to sit the trot/canter.
To learn to sit the trot/canter you need to take lessons on a different horse. You aren't confident in your horse, and that will affect your riding. Being around animals your whole life and training animals is MUCH different from breaking and training a horse. Horses are different from dogs, and fine tuning a broke horse is different from training and breaking a green horse from the ground up. You need to work on your seat with a trainer on a different horse. You're nervous about what your horse may do, and you can't focus on your own riding.
