THat's a really hard decision to make but it sounds like the right one!!! I've been around horses my whole life and have a 5 year old that i'm training. She is testing every limit I've got and I don't feel like I"m going to be able to train her either. So I completely know where you are coming from!!! I'm sure you will find the right horse!! Hopefully before you decide to get out of horses!!! yikes!

Amy,

That's cool! So Tom's keeping Vega now then? And he's letting you get a new horse?

Wow, you scored yourself a great guy! Keep us updated! Can't wait to see the adds of your "could-be" horses

This might sound bad because of what you have just gone thru but I will bring it up anyways. Since you can keep your mare, would you consider getting a foal? do you think that could be an option for your situation?
They require regular lessons over a much longer period of time. Only you would know if it's something that could work.

I did it after dealing with a problem horse which I trained and resold (for good money *cough*cough*) and now doing it again with 3 yearlings which except for one I have owned them since they were 5 months old

The bond I have with 2 that are with me is beyond words and even tho they do require regular short term lessons one on one, raising them when done properly is quite pleasant and they turn out the way you want them. I will say now tho, when it comes down to breaking and teaching them the basics under saddle, they will be trained by the trainer.

What kind of horse are you wanting to get? a QH? can I maybe entice you with some PMU foals? I think they would be in your price range. Some gorgeous sport horse foals. I will pm you.

I'd prefer something older.. like between 6-10 years but am willing to go to 12 with the right horse.

3k is my absolute limit, so something under that would be even better

I actually saw an ad for a paint draft cross, he was gorgeous, but his sale was pending :( So a draft cross is definitely an option. A quarter horse, paint, or anything really. I'd like it to be 15.2+, preferablly 16+ if i can get it.

I just want a horse that i don't have to battle with and wonder what monster she'll spook at next.

And defintely a gelding! I much rather deal with cleaning sheaths than a mare.

I'll think of more, but that's basically my list for now.

New Jersey is smallish right? Sooo, if I find you some possible horses that are in NJ they might work? :)

I want to do a horse search, please, please, please!

I don't want to travel too far to see the horse, or to get it trailered, and with the price of gas, the closer the better.

My zip is 07821

please do a horse search for me... i have refined my search and i only have 4.. one of which i don't know the price and the rest are over my limit but i figure i could always ask them if they'd come down to 3k.. so i guess when you search, search up to 4500.

Thanks so much! :)
