All I can say is SHE UNDERSTANDS HIM. She grew up with horses but hasn't had one for a while, however she has been riding her friend's horse the past 6 months. She just hasn't found the "right" horse. She wants a horse to just play around with on trail, to love, and to be her buddy. And after a search through many horses, she and Cinny just "clicked." She is leasing him for about 6 months and then buying him after that. She just wants to really know him before fully committing and I completely understand that. He's not an easy horse to get along with sometimes.
I am sad, and somewhat heartbroken for him to go. I just know that when I give in to him, I'm not happy, and he tries very hard to please me and in doing so he isn't happy either. We have been a a tug of war for a while. He is still my heart horse and it's tearing me up, but I know he will be happier with her.
