    Desperately need Help, Suggestions

    Okay, so I bought Jet August 24th, 2005. Up until now, I've been obsessed with him. He's my first and only horse. Yesterday I get home from school and my parents tell me that my Grandma called. (I keep Jet at her house) They tell me Grandma says that I haven't been around lately keeping up with my horse. (It's true because Jet recently scared me on the longe line and I thought I needed a break) She also says that if I'm no longer interested in horses,
    (which is what she thinks) then I need to sell or move Jet. There have been problems about Jet ever since Mom and Dad bought Jet. That's been two years, I think. Parents and I have been discussing it, and I've come to realize that my interest in horses is slowly drying up. I hate showing, because I get so nervous I feel like I'm going to throw up, but I enjoy riding the trails. And now whenever I saddle up, all the sheer joy is gone. We can't afford a boarding stable, and part of me wants to sell him because I know I'll afford horses when I graduate, the issues will disappear, don't get to see him often, and my passion is leaving, but I want to keep Jet because I love him, and I could still learn a lot from him. What would you do? I'm so tangled.

    *sorry for any confusion. Just tell me if anything needs to be clarified*

    Can you lease him out or part board him ?

    I am in college and thought I might have that problem when I first started. Luckily, I found a super cheap pasture board through our school's equestrian team and rodeo team. I don't show my personal horse as I don't like competition, but trail ride all the time. It is relaxing, and actual training is required to become a "trail horse." Having a good, calm trail horse is something that Jet might could become.
