I have a 8 year old canadian mare that my mum and I have raised from 3 month old. I'm getting to the point where I want to do more jumping and showing. She is quite stocky and not so much the athletic type. Also, about 2 years ago, she got a suspensory ligament injury, that has healed up nicely, but I don't want to just her too high because of it.... I want to buy horse that is not so heavy built but I can't unless I sell the horse I have. If you were in my situation, what would you do?
PS. I am 15 years old and have been around horses for as long as I can remember.
