I found a home for Whisper. A nice family with a couple young girls. She's only going about 10 min away, but I can't help but be really sad that she's leaving. She has been my heart horse that I have spent the last couple years just loving on because she wasn't trained to ride. I know it's for the best. She'll actually get used, since I think the entire family is shorter than I am, so I know she won't be too small for them.
The man that bought Persia last weekend also called her trainer today because he got bucked off, which I was really hoping wouldn't happen. Apparently he didn't do any groundwork with her at all, just threw the saddle on and tried to go for a ride. Her trainer clearly explained that she needed to be worked before hand, so it could have been avoided but I still feel bad because she was going to such a good home.
I'm just having a bad day. Even though I rode my new horse and showed her the barrel pattern for the first time today, which she did pretty good at, she has really nice tight turns, the negative just outweigh the possitive today and I'm feeling a little blue.
