Thanks Val.
Its not a decision taken lightly! I'm purely looking to get back what I paid for, perhaps a bit more, so then I can buy another that is more suited to the job.
I'm hoping that who ever I sell her too would keep in touch- I'd love to see how she progresses!!

Best of luck with everything. If she does go onto somebody else, fingers crossed you get the horse your lookin for :)

You can always enjoy watching Duffy compete in jumping knowing that all of your dressage work made jumping so much easier for her.

I will look forward to experiencing the horse hunt with you. You have a much better idea of what to look for with all of your experiences with Duffy.

Too true! And if she stays local, I'll be able to watch her compete and keep you guys updated ;)

I hope I can keep in touch.. but then part of me says cut loose in case she doesn't make it and I sold her for the wrong reasons :/ There is more than one.. but overthinking it .

You guys are going to be there every step of the way, trust me! Any I see I'll post on here, film when I ride and upload.. I'll be taking my trainer to a second viewing if I feel.. yes! But second,third and fourth opinions are always good to have!

Hmmm...I am very interested in the video you just posted in your other thread. Very intriguing horse. I would make inquiries quickly, personally.

Otherside of Germany.. quite literally ;)

They're a dime a dozen out here, when one goes three take its place.

I need to stop posting them lol! I have people on the search too, namely my farrier as he has lots of contacts.

For the right horse, it's worth making the trip. And it's a pretty fair price too.

I'm excited for your search for the perfect sporty dressage mount :)

Me too, in the right time ;)

Thing is I don't need to travel that far.. Warendorf is about 1h20 away.. and that's HUGE horse country.. you can't swing a cat without hitting something for you.. or several ;)

I keep forgetting I still HAVE a pony right now lol, so will keep up with her work, and go from there :)

I know I am a bit late :/
Oh duffy I am sorry to hear this, but I am glad you are going to try and find one better for what you want to do. I know you came a long way with her and know you will find her a good place and find yourself a good prospect for dressage. Can't wait to read your updates hopefully you have more lucky then let downs :)

Duffy...good luck with everything! I know it is a hard choice to make, but like I told Cecilia B on here, life is far too short, IMO, to have a horse that you don't see yourself going in the same direction with.

Good Luck with everything, and keep us updated!!!
