I'm so frustrated. He's been in training for over a month now and showing hardly any signs of improvement when being ridden. Our trainer says he bucks and rears and goes nuts when a mare is in heat. Come to find out, he wasn't properly gelded. WHAT???? He is definitely not going to be the right horse for me considering I'm still somewhat of a beginner. I just hate being in this kind of situation. He was sort of a surprise for me but if I would have had a choice, he would not have been the horse I picked for myself (I was 13 and he was 3 when I first got him 5 years ago). I knew that young kids and young horses don't usually go well together.
I really don't know what to do now. So what do you do with a horse that isn't gelded properly? Do you get it...ummm...."redone"?
We'll probably sell him, but we just spent $600 on his training and we have to pay $300 again next week. Our trainer says he doesn't like to give up on horses and wants to give him another week. I don't want to be in the hole after this. I would like to be able to get another horse that is better for me. How much do you think I could sell him for? He is a gorgeous 8 year old purebred TWH. He just has the problems mentioned above. We already had one man bragging about his gorgeous gait who offered to buy him, but that was a few years ago before all this.
Thanks for reading. I would be so grateful for any advice.
