That sounds awful to deal with. She sounds pretty well soured of showing, she might be better off just being a trail horse. It's hard to bring one back like that. Sorry she didn't work out for you.

She's a good horse. If I were more financially able I'd keep her and breed her this spring to a top barrel stud. She's won many buckles, trophies, 2x state champion, wnd the bloodlines to back her up..when she was in her prime she was awesome but then she was sold to the guy who ruined her.. She already has a 3 year old in the barrel pen who is really starting to come into himself.

I know that I have Hickory and Nikki that I wont ever sell and if I'm not going to be running Lark she'll be the third horse in my string and its not fair to her.. it's nice to have an extra trail horse but I'd feel bad letting her just sit there..even though she'd be happy with it.. I also just don't have the money being a broke college kid to feed three horses this winter and Lark just be an eating machine.I know that sounds terrible but it's just the truth. :( it makes me sad!

Anyone can ride her on trails and at the house after the work I've done with her. Even boyfriend friendly Lol

She and I are both fine now. My back hurt like crazy for twoish weeks but it's better.

Sorry about my previous reply; somehow I only saw the first page of this thread. I hear your pain about not having the time that a particular horse needs. I was in the same situation with a mare about 18 months ago. I ended up giving her away to become a broodmare. That ended up bad, but now she is with a very determined lady who is spending lots of time with her. The new owner is still having the same problems, but she has more time to spend with retraining and retraining and retraining. That may well be what Lark needs. If Lark goes to the previous owner, you wouldnt need to worry about someone walking in blind without understanding and accepting that Lark is not a horse for the uninitiated. I think that`s a good idea.

I can haz Lark? (Not really, though. I'm a broke high school student.)

lol She has looks too!



Practices amazing at arenas.. But not at a show.


"Oh, you want to stand on my back... Sure.. I won't move"


I got her in November of last year and by February I could (and still can) work her on barrels bareback.. if you skip to 2:00 we lope the pattern with no problem.



She's just a fantastic horse except at shows. I put a TON of work into her in the past year and brought her back from the horse no one wanted to ride and many couldn't handle her.
