    Okay maybe you prefer not to answer this but how old are you and how long have you been riding? I would suggest moving somewhere you can take more lessons and challenge yourself. I am having a hard time understanding why you would buy a new horse if you were so unhappy where you board and no other place to board and no instructor, goals, etc.

    (did the change in boarding situation happen the same exact time as you getting the new horse?)

    There is always new things to learn and always new challenges proper instructors can present.

    From what I can gather:

    You had a very well trained pony and have advanced to a less trained horse
    You recently had a change in your boarding situation and have no one to ride with and no instructor to challenge you or help you connect with your horse.
    You are only allowed to do slow gaits in the arena and have no one to trail ride with.

    I would talk to your BO and parents and tell them how you feel and look around for a riding club and/or new instructor to challenge you and see if you can resolve the way you are feeling about your new horse.

    Keep looking for a new boarding place, ask at the local feed store, etc.

    Just trying to help.

    When your in school, you need to look into a 4H group. They are great places to meet people your age who are interested in horses.
    Also look into local clubs. I know just in our little county we have a group that is mostly trail riders and there is another club that is more into the rodeo/cattle horse work.
    I'm sure if you find some people your own age or those with interests the same as yours, your interest in your horse will improve.


    Oh yes, and welcome to the forum

    I am just trying to figure it out so we can help.:) What type of lessons are you taking right now on your new horse? Are you able to do things that challenge you a bit more and help you to connect to your horse?

    Are there any local riding clubs? Does your trainer have any other students?

    Okay so what in a perfect world could change so you would be happy ?
    Is it really the new horse or the changing conditions at your barn?

    probably both. The horse would be first, and the barn adds to it.
