Unhappy Selling Deja

So after a year and a half of fighting, compromising, arguing, and bickering with this mare, I have given up. On the ground she is an angel, but I have come to accept that under saddle, she is just too much for me.I have sent her to training and she does great for them. I get her back and she goes back to how she was. The only thing I can take from that is that she and I are not right for each other. It makes me sad, but I think this is better for both of us. I have her listed on an Arabian specific sales board in hopes that she may be picked up as a broodie since she finds being ridden to be so terribly inconvenient. So far, a few nibbles. We'll see how it turns out. I am hoping to pick up an old Arab gelding like I probably should have in the first place, but hindsight is 20/20 right?
Bleh. Sad, happy, excited, terrified. This su.cks. Anywho. Off to check my email again. Just though I would share this with you all since I don't have any horsey friends to talk to.

Sorry to hear you went through all this. Sometimes there is just nothing you can do but glad to hear you really tried to work it out with her. Hopefully your new horse will be a better match for you. Good luck with selling your mare and keep us posted on your new horse.

Thanks M2G. I guess her and I are just a horse and person that do not click. Mana and I have a great relationship, but she simply is not the horse for me.
She's only 10 so instead of letting her rot away any further, it's time to send her to someone that can use her. It is not official, but there is a large chance that she may be permanently exported to Canada to be a broodie at a small Arabian farm. Watch out Canada!! On a lighter note, I have been offered an older Arabian mare. She is 22, been there done that type. She was used in western pleasure demonstrations at Midwest Horse Fair a couple times in her day and was retired to be a broodie. The problem is that she had trouble settling a foal, so for the last 9 years she has been sitting around except for the occasional trail ride. Her people are looking to finding her a good permanent home, so I am going on Saturday to see her. Wish me luck!!
