Who knows, theses kids might just want to do trail riding until they get older? I'm sure that Maia will grow up with these girls, and their abilities will grow as will hers just with experience and age alone. Personally i think it's a great home option! Who else loves a sweet horse more than a loving family? Maybe when they are older they will want to do some little showing/basic dressage, which i'm sure maia will love, for it won't be as intense of training like you say her heart isn't in. Persoanlly i think it's a great situation! Really it all boils down to finding a loving home, no matter what she gets to do, love is the main thing. :] Good luck! and i know you will make the right decision!!

Allie, I was dead shocked when you told me they wanted to trail ride with her.

Personally I think it's a good offer. The horse market is terrible right now and you know that she is going to be going to a loving long term home, you can't say forever because you never know.

Yesterday I went out and looked at a 14 year old mare that had two years pro cutting training and had won alot of money cutting who they were selling for $3000. She was perfectly sound and pretty, but past her prime(I mean this as a pro cutter only, don't get offended anyone, plase!) unfortunatly for her.

Well, Maia has been conditionally sold to these lovely folks. As far as I understand, they want a forever horse, which is perfect.
I figure if it's meant to be, it's meant to be... if not, well... that's perfectly okay too.

Well, this lady's trainer has to OK her first... she has to pass a vet check as well.
If all goes well, should be finalized in a couple weeks.


Thanks! Gender doesn't matter to me... I am going to be slightly picky about color though and say that sorrel isn't my favorite... don't judge me anyone!

Aw, you are selling her? :( She is gorgeous! I hope she finds a nice home, & does well. I do agree though- it is YOUR choice, & you're doing the right thing for you.

Ride more, worry less.
