Selling my horse, don't know if it is the right decision
I Started riding western for at five years old, I kept riding western for eight years till something popped up, my grandparents best friends have three Pasos and have a granddaughter the same age as me and offered me to ride with them, I found it fun, I didn't know what you could and couldn't donwith a paso fino. They told us we could ride any three of their horses any time we wanted to for 150 a month. It was as If I had gotten a horse, I never thought I would stick to it though. I rode with their granddaughter isabel for about a year and it was great. Then my parents, who don't know much about horses, decided to get me a tip top nationals winning paso fino mare, to me a horse was a horse and I was as happy as I could be. She turned out to be An extremely difficult horse who was nervous, spooky, and temperamental. I had my trainer start riding her so she could get out of her stall everyday, amdnthings got better. She only let me ride her, anybody who would get on would end up almost falling off. But she had no problem with me riding her. She turned out to be just like a dog, follows me everywhere, jumps and loves it, has an amazing gait, does some tricks and we bonded amazingly. She's a very sensitive horse and I can't even out my legs on her, and from coming from riding quarter horses and loving it, a thought of paso finos not being what I wanted to do crept into my head. I'm always cantering my horse, which can cause her to lose her gait if I keep doing it, and with her potential, I don't think it is worth it for that to happen. I have been riding my friends quarter horse a lot lately and I miss western riding so so so much. And I have decided to sell my horse for a quarter horse. This Is the hardest thing I have ever done in my entire life, I can't sell her to a little girl who I know will treat her like her puppy since she isn't at all kid safe. And I know how paso fino trainers ride their horses, and I'm not a big fan of it. But my horse Has all the things they see in their horses. I know she's not going to be jumped, not going to be given treats and taught tricks which kills me. But I want to feel the power of western riding again, so badly. I'm afraid that if I sell her I will regret it. Only because I will feel so sorry for her. Your probably thinking if you have so many bad thoughts why are you selling her? Whenever I think if riding I picture myself galloping through a field, not going corto and largo. I need to know if this is the right decision or not, any opinion or suggestion would help. And if you are selling any kid safe family horses, let me know.
