Thank you. I probably won't fully go through with the buying until I get things set aside and fixed up financially. But so long as I can get the ball rolling either which way, it will help me decide.

As I try to sleep, I realize I have am epiphany!

I was looking back to the last time I brought chance out. We worked on our sending and me gaining control of his feet. I eventually switched it up when I thought he got the hang of it to lunge him.

He actually lunged for me instead of doing his pacing thing. He had a couple times when he looked like he was going to, but he corrected himself. That boy never properly lunged for me before then, and I can't believe I made the realization until now! I always thought the issue was a lack of whip but I have lunged him with a whip and gotten pacey results. But oh man... Makes me excited to know that we actually did something right together.

Can't wait to work even more with him. : )

the advice i would give you would to really carefully think over when you buy a horses i am 18 and have bought my own horse i have had one previously but wasnt mine ( i was given him to look after so i paid for food etc) but the horse i have recently bought hasnt cost me alot but he has a few problems that i over looked because i was too excited to have him he has aural plaques, sarcoids and one of his hooves is cracked pretty badly which will take up to a year to completly heal :( he also didnt come with a passport (papers) witch i can easily get but is going to cost me a bit hope this helps :)

* Poverty is another word for owning a horse...
