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.
