Make room on the 'Tad confused couch' Saskia
It doesn't make sense to me either, if you feel to big on your arab, but want to start small ponies?
I'm also struggling with balancing
I believe that with an intermediate/advanced rider, she could be slowed down, and taught whatever anybody would want to do. She'd be perfect for Eventing. Good Dressage, braver than any horse I've met, and quick about it. She's 14 going on 5, and is ready to do anything.
I want her to be worked, and I want her to be shown. Neither of which is happening. This makes me think she might just be happier leased to a little girl who will love her, and love to ride her. A more petite girl.
Because that means that you are rating yourself as a less than intermediate rider, so why would you think that you can start horses?
If you would lease a horse that needs an intermediate/advanced rider to a child to enjoy, then that maybe doesn't say much to your future in business.
Maybe I'm missing something?
