I've been working with my girl for almost four months now and we have made some amazing progress. I have learned a huge amount from her but I just feel like she and I aren't really suited personality wise. She is sensitive, hot and can be highly reactive to really little things. I do think some of it is from her previous owner but some of it will be just her too. A friend knows bloodless really well and doesn't know Magic... But described her with eerie accuracy.
I feel that I am not a sensitive enough horse person and don't have quite enough feel to make this work. She would be better off with someone else, someone with more of the things I don't have enough of.
So she is now officially on the market and I did advertise her but had to take down the ad due to some really nasty comments by local folks who have decided I am awful based on what I was like two years plus ago and what they see in what I say that is not actually what is said.
It's really hard for me to admit something just won't work and even harder when apparently I can't do anything right.
I guess this is more of a frustrated rant than anything else but I still would appreciate thoughts on the matter.
At present I am trying to find her a home with a trainer who might take her on as a personal project... She is a sweet heart but so so sensitive she really does need someone who has done it all a million times before. Not someone like me, someone still learning how to train the quiet ones let alone the sensitive ones!
I feel like a failure but hey I tried and I learned a lot which I can hopefully apply to something a little less reactive.
