So I have a yearling filly named Patches that I purchased in early April. She's been doing well good for me but I think I might have had a change of heart. Its summer and all of my horsey-friends are out riding and hitting the trails when all I can do is walk Patches and desnsitize her and stuff like that. And by the time I can ride her, I'll be going away to college and even though I want to get on an equestrian team, she's not going to be ready for that. Enter Lakota, a 5 y-o tri-colored Paint. He's traffic safe and broke. His owner is selling him because she has no idea what she's doing with him and he's a big horse and he's used to letting his size push people around. She's kind of mean to him...the mean where she punishes him 30 minutes after he did something and its the punishment that makes people cringe. I took Lakota out today(he's at my trainers barn)and at first he tried to push himself around but when I made him mind, he's a good boy. I took him on the trails with my trainer and then he went into the indoor and rode around a bit. When he thinks he's done he tries to swing his head around and stop moving, but I just made him do what I wanted him to do and it worked out for us. I know I would have a lot of work with both horses but I just want your opinions. The bad thing is, I can't afford to keep both of the horses. I would either have to sell Patches back to her previous owner or watch Lakota go home with not knowing whats going to happen to him. Thanks! Here's a picture of Lakota.
