This is the question....please read after "my worst rod

Too sell or not to sell.

I have bubble blisters on my hands. I'm sore. And I am emotionally imbalanced when it comes to Blu. I know it sounds stupid but its true. I want everyone's opinions. Help me!!!!! :(

Aw, I agree. Don't give up- keep your chin up & I hope the next ride goes better.

Ride more, worry less.

I rode Blu today. It wasn't exactly better. Its like he dropped everything we taught him and can't seem to pick it up at the time.

Oh, I swear if his head is in my face again..........

I couldnt' ride him back home because he wouldn't walk straight, stop prancing, stop throwing his head, or even STOP! I ended up walking a good two miles next to Boo. With him walking all over me!!!

My friend is no help either. Just sitting on him while I'm being trampled and can't get on.

You need to give him time. Even if you were to sell him any other horse you get after him will also go thru this exact same phase. They all have their waves of being punks, all of them.
In his case it sounds like there is something bothering him and you need to figure out what it is. Selling him won't solve the issue.

Once you have ruled out his tack, taking some lessons with a professional would be I'm sure of great benefit. He/she might be able to help you figure out whats going on with him.

Bailing on him is the easy way out. Keep your chin up and try to see if you can understand what he's telling you.

I just don't get how I've had him for two years and he's never been so bad. Whats wrong with him?! I'm probably going to switch bits....AGAIN, for the hundredth time!

4-H was for Blu and I to learn to show together. I know how to show. He doesn't. And I can't really teach him without seeing what we are doing if that makes sense. But to be competely honest...our 4-H SUCKS right now.

So next year I'll be going to Round Valley, a town about 30min away within the same County.
