Well, I had the initial thread started over the weekend about possible horses.
Long story short, I bought a pair of balet pumps to go rock climbing. I have had an in depth conversation with my trainer, and she believes Duffy is built to jump, and any dressage work will be difficult on her, and she won't do it particularly well. As I want to get in to this as a sport, I have to be realistic.
Two things happened tonight. I saw my farrier who jumps S class (one level below GP) and I asked if he knew anyone who would jump her. He has offered- that was lovely.
So I go in to speak to my trainer and let her know, she said good good.. I go to tack Duffy up and she says you need to speak to P's owner.. now!
Run in, and she says she heard my convo (one time I am glad someone eavesdropped!) and said her jumping trainer (also S class) is ALWAYS on the look out for horses of Duffy's caliber, and fiestyness... so, I believe he's coming this weekend to trial her.
I had no idea things would move this fast.. and if he doesn't buy, he may know someone who does, or give me an idea of where to go with her.
So, this thread is basically going to be the updates, more than likely the let downs, and any ounce of positive news!
