Fingers crossed for me?
So, I heard back from the woman who had the TB mare (7y/o grey with jumping experience) and apparently she's on trial.. which is a bit of a bummer since I've had slim to none success finding many other horses who are what I'm looking for, in the price range I have. (up to $4500 max) I've found two horses in the past few weeks, and that's after searching about a dozen horse sale websites and websites for barns in NB and NS. One of the two is a bit buck-kneed, which although I read isn't too bad depending on severity.. but I'd rather start out with a horse who has decent leg conformation, as I want to get more into jumping and even try out dressage eventually.
It makes me wish that I lived in Ontario or BC perhaps, there seems to be many more horses that could fit my wants/needs for a horse.
I'm also dreading the moment when I tell my trainer how I'm not going to buy Major, even though there's a well-respected Western trainer who told me to tell her that she's very interested in him if I don't take him.. plus another girl wanted him for cattle penning and gaming. (I'd like to see anyone try to turn him into a gaming horse haha) Basically, my instructor doesn't think I'll click with any other horse. Little does she remember, I never clicked with Major for months so I don't see it as a problem. I'm just trying to find a horse that will be suitable now, and at least five years from now.. since it'd be easier than just selling Major and buying a different horse when he doesn't suit my needs five years from now.
Forever loved, never forgotten; my beautiful Indie. <3 Hoofprints on my heart.
