I need you opinion and advice. Looking for a rider...
Short intro (you can skip to the problem):
Mare 14 yo, holsteiner, 16hands, great to ride, well broke, was a showjumper before, now just trails, healthy, but can cause problems if she is injured and you came with something do clean it. Sometimes nervous, horse with a lot of go, but can be stop easily. Needs a soft hand.
Gelding 6yo, pony, 12hands, rescue horse, foundered, respect problems with new people. Has very strict diet and needs working with somebody everyday. Very smart and more whoa. Not scared easily, lunges okay, not ridden-foundered.
I'm going to college in 1,5 year. My mom can't work with my horses more than basic things, neither tell if a horse needs a vet or not. I wish that I'll be able to drive everyday to college (100miles everyday), but even that way I'll be at home only in the evenings.
I need someone to keep eye on my horses, especially on pony. Someone to tell my mom: call a vet, it's serious. Or I can handle this, it's just a scratch.
I'm thinking about going to the club I used to ride and ask my extrainer to suggest me few people that would be able to do things I need. I know I stilll have time, but I want this people to know my horses very good and that I can know they will they care of my horses.
Do you think I could trade riding once/twice a week for thorough examination twice a week? And coming in the emergency?
Is this a good idea? Any other suggestions?
Please help, because I really feel more horrible everyday, about this college thing. I don't want to leave my horses.
