So this is just a thought not set in stone in anyway

Well my mom has been talkin to my friend megans parents who had moved to italy bout 4 years ago. Well they have been talkin bout me moving there with them . I really would loove to move there I have always wanted to move out of the states one day and it would be an amazing experience.

My ONLY problem with this plan is that I wont be able to keep fury. I would have to sell her before I move this summer and quite riding possibly for good unless megans parents will pay for me to take lessons there.

Now I know I could ship her there but I HONESTLY think that would be waay to hard on her going from 115 degree weather to freezing cold it just wouldnt be a good idea and plus we couldnt afford to do that anyways.

I feel like I would be a horrible person to do this I have only had her about 4 months and if I do go there she will have to be sold once again and considering she isn't trained heavily for anything that will be difficult to find someone who KNOWs exactly what they need to do.

So as I said this has not been set in stone but I just had to get it off my chest.. id just feel horrible about sellin her again because we have gotten so close already.

Italy is'nt cold you do know that ye? But you wouldnt be moving for a little while soo if you had to sell her you would have time to find someone who suits her well or even consider leasing her so if you come back you can still own her there are many ways around it so no need to panic just yet. Im pretty sure quarantine is 3months in total to ensure no diseases are carried but as im not from there and only going on the rules in my own country I wouldt guarantee that though!
You just have to sit down and think about what you want

Where my friend is at in italy its cold .....and gaurenteed colder then the 115+ humidity we have been having here nd she's already a hard keeper in the weight department.
I get what you are saying though
Its just a matter of me not trusting many people with her because she can be very unpredictable nd needs a whole bunch of work before I would consider leasing her out without a promised trainer/lessons/ and such
If that makes any sense

When I had a horse that I was interested in moving long distance with me an experienced horse person pulled me aside and told me how traumatic a long travel experience could be (my horse would have had to go for a short ship ride as well) and that if the horse wasn't particularly unique and if I didn't sort of have that intense, sort of "forever" bond that it would be better just selling the horse and buying one on the other side. It would be the wisest thing to do financially and for the sake of the horse.

I did sell her and found a home that was probably better for her than me, because she was young and they had heaps and heaps of time to put into her.

The chance to go live in another country is pretty wonderful. You probably don't think about it now, but it can be difficult to live in other countries when you're older and have to support yourself because work visas etc. can be hard to come by. You have the chance to learn a new language and discover a very different culture. Additionally, I imagine you'd be attending school there - that is an opportunity you would not be able to repeat in the future. I would have loved to go overseas while in high school.

I'm sure you love your horse, but you have only had her for 4 months. You can always have horses but this is an experience that you might not get to repeat.

I don't think its bad to sell a horse provided you find it a good, safe and suitable home.

Saskia-thank you for the advice that is what I am most worried about is the stress of going so far and the major changes.
