That's the plan anyways.. I mean, if I click with the horse and the horse goes well (even if he/she does need a bit of work).. then I'll do my best to convince my dad. I just wish that I had a more realistic coach who realizes that in the end, it's my choice. I know she'll likely be mad/upset when I tell her I'm not likely buying Major, but she'll have to deal with it.

Well it's a shame that she seems to have her own agenda when it comes to this horse.

You may never know if she has her best interests, the horse's best interests, your best interests.. a mix of two or all three.. at heart.

Just gotta do what's best I suppose.

Yeah, I just feel like she wants me to buy Major so that she'll have spare cash in her pocket.. even though I know that she'd have an easy time selling him as many people have expressed interest, despite the fact that she's asking a bit too much.

I was a bit taken back though when she said I couldn't handle even a slightly green horse.. since she credits me with most of Major's training and it was her idea for me to lease him in the start. I was originally leasing a Standardbred mare but apparently she couldn't do jumping so she wanted me to lease Major.. but the funny thing is that Maggie is being jumped just as much as Major now in lessons, as she's being leased by another girl now.

Either way, there's been multiple things that led to me not wanting to buy Major, even though I adore him.

1) In our clinic, he somehow managed to do something to his stifle (or so everyone there thought) and she figured he'd be fine to do the show once she gave him some bute. By the end of the day, his leg was locking up again and she continually just said "he was fine" and that there was only a few classes left.

2) He's not exactly what I want in a horse.

At least, you can always fall back on the excuse-My Dad said No.
