So next year I'm getting a horse of my own. I've struggled over which horse I like at my barn that I could lease for a while, and this summer I spent 4 weeks at my BO's other barn down in Virginia. If I wanted, one of the horses there could come up here if I would lease them.
Soo I really couldn't find a horse I liked here, and was going to try ones at another barn until this summer, when I started riding Clementine. She is really hard to ride but, I can handle her, and she's perfect when I focus. I've already been given the OK to take her home next year and planned to show her all of this summer.
The problem is. . I don't know if she's TOO hard. While I can handle her, I techinically haven't seen her at her "worst" yet. I'm worried I'll take her home & she'll be a totally different horse. The other time she ever 'did' anything was when she bucked me off in the field because a gelding ran up behind her & scared her, and of course, she's a mare. But that was the one and only time I took her in the field and now I'm scared to take her in there. . And I don't know if the situation is too sketchy to commit to her. I've been told she really likes me, but I don't know how she'd respond to a new place, and being worked more? Help!
