It's been a sweet 3 years with the Cin man, but it has become very clear to me that although I love him with all my heart, and I'm sure he loves me just as much, we are going in different directions. He prefers no work, and to only play on trails and I am really loving Dressage. So, I have been looking for someone to lease or maybe buy him off and on for a year but haven't found the right person, until today.
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.
