Thanks for replying guys. Chili is 9, almost 10 years old. I know that waiting is probably worth it, I just want to start getting some where with my riding. I havent been able to do anything really. First lease horse didnt work out, wasnt made for jumping and sucked at dressage. Second lease horse I LOVED and wanted to be with her forever but she sadly went lame in her hocks and couldnt be ridden faster then a trot anymore (after she was don't healing up). Third lease horse turned into a nut once I got her home and I had a really bad fall off of her that knocked my confidience, but I still rode her. She was to much horse for me (while jumping) in the end, she would grab the bit and run full speed at the jumps. Then I found out she might have Navicular. Now Chili... He is a wonderful horse, I just don't think he likes jumping (when my trainer let me try he acted like it was going to eat him and he galloped all around the arena [though I blame that on myself]). I just feel like at the stage im at in my riding I need a horse that is a seasoned jumper and is a calm one too.
I almost feel as though my trainer is doing this on purpose. She said that once im done with the three month lease that if I want to keep on leasing him then he is my problem if he doesnt work out, a.i. If I don't want him anymore then I get to sell him and he can't go back to her place.
I think im going to make a deal with her that I will take him, work on his training so I can still get the experience, and put him up for sale for her and get him sold. All of which will probably take the whole summer.
My mom said that I can do that since we are about to give our mare away to the girl that has been riding her for a few years now, leaving us with three horses, including Chili. Our pasture can hold and feed up to five horses, so she said that I could start looking for a new lease horse once Rosie is gone. Oh and please don't call us horse traders, if you knew the entire situation it wouldnt seem like we were.
Anyways, im trying not to be an upset freak, so I should probably stop writing before I start, heh. Thanks for replying everyone.
