Having to make a hard decision... May be selling my boy

I found out the other night, I honestly don't have anything I can do with my colt until November. So I'm pretty much having to sell him, and it mashes me very sad. I won't have anywhere to keep him until November when I can afford board.

What I'm going to do is take the money I get from him and put it back to get another horse once I can afford board. I'm going to miss him because I know he's going to make a great horse. But he really isn't what I need anyway. As much as I'd love to have him as a trail horse, that's 2 years from now. I just can't wait that long really.

Anyway, what should I be thinking about between now and when I buy another horse? I wanna do it right this time and really get a horse that really clicks with me.

Is it possile to lease him to somone until then and they keep him at their barn/ I'm not sure how that would work but it's an idea. I really hope you don't have to sell your horse!

I don't see why anyone would lease him because he's only a year, there's nothing anyone could do with him.

PLEASE try to lease him. Well trained horses available to ride during the peak of the season are hard to come by, judging by all of the "I got hurt _______" posts from newbies we keep getting.
When "Corporal" was 5yo, I had a money problem. He was the LEAST trained of my string and I gave him to a student who had just won a 3yo Arabian in a local contest, but her gelding wasn't broken yet. ONE YEAR LATER, I get a call from an interested buyer, who said the "Laura" told them to call ME about buying him. I called her, surprised, and she said that 2 horses were too expensive, and "did I want him back?"
Stranger things have happened.

He isn't broke at all though? He's only a year old. Basically someone would be paying to look at a pretty horse

All I can say is good luck with your horse

Thank you, I MAY have a place to keep him. But it would be a HUGE inconvenience to everyone. I don't know what to do!

I don't understand this, what has changed? You must of known when you bought him that for a few years they just stand around looking pretty for most of the time?

If you want a trail horse NOW, well that's what you should have, so it makes sense to sell him and put the money towards what you really want.

I have spent all of this year soul searching and selling, my problem was to many horses, for all of the wrong reasons, so I have sold the ones that I wasn't using properly, and bought what I hope I need, and want......it hurts but all I can say is next time be very honest with yourself and buy what you really want.

What I meant by "I don't gave anything to do with him" is we are moving from my current house with 7 acres to an appartment. I was going to keep him at a friends, but that can't happen now. And I can't get a job and pay board until I get my lisence in November.
