Need Help Finding Motivation for this horse
I am kinda having a unique problem with a horse right now. I normally ride every day no matter what the weather and love being out there. I still love to ride every day but I am having problems with this one horse.
My boyfriend bought a young horse and asked me to help him train it, then we broke up and he moved out leaving the horse as payment for the money he owed me. Every time I look at this horse or work with him I get upset thinking about the nasty way things ended with my boyfriend.
I love the horse and think he will make somebody an awesome horse. I would like to get him to a point where I can make a little money by selling him. I just feel like I am not the progress I should with him because of my negative attitude. I know I am doing him no favors but I can't seem to justify selling him at a loss when I know he could be so much better. I have trained lots of horses and I have never run into this problem before. So I guess what I am asking is .. should I keep him and try and work through my negative issues and make him the horse I know he can be. Or should I sell him for far less than he is worth and cut my losses?
