Someone tell me to stop being so stupid!!

Reeco goes away for breaking on saturday and I'm wibling about it.

I know in my head that this is est for him, I do not have the time, facilities or the knowlege to do half as good a job as the lady I am sending him too.
I also cannot afford to have a nasty fall, I've already got some fairly extensive damage to my back and falling again could put me out for a while.

I know that I am sending him to the Best, I've thourghly researched everything, i've got reccomendations and references for her coming out of my ears, I've been and seen the yard, I'm realy happy that for the 6 weeks he would be there he would be treated as a member of the family and I am able to go and see him at any time I want. Her show results are impressive, infact she is currently the star of the show circuit having had one of her ponies (that she has broken and schooled herself) win EVERY major championship this year (HOYS flat M&M championship, HOYS working hunter M&M championship, NPS Olympia M&M championship are the 3 biggest)

BUT I'm wibling, I've lost 2 horses in short succession, Reeco is what has kept me sane, he is my baby and the centre of my world at the moment. I realy realy don't like the idea of him being out of my immediate control, what if something goes wrong?

Arggg some one tell me to stop being so stupid!!

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

I felt the same way when I sent mine off...but Im a control freak and its hard for me to let someone else take care of my horses. But as long as you can check up on them when you want (which I did) and you've done all your research...I wouldnt think there was anything you missed. It gets better after the first week their gone, and after you've made your first check of their care/progress. And the funny thing is it will probably upset you more than them..except they wont get to be lazy anymore. And training a horse is something that's best when done right the first time. And usually there are a variety of horses there to keep them entertained too...my walker would let the stud horse next to him out of his stall(because he is pretty smart with latches) and it took 3 times for this to happen for the trainer to figure out how he was getting out.

But you can visit him while he's in training! Meaning you still will be with your baby AND he get trained!

The only downside is that it is an hour and a halfs drive from home so I can't go and see him everyday.

Stop being so stupid!!

No, I'm kidding haha. You'll get over not being able to see him every day - just look forward to the days you do get to see him! The time will go by very fast, just keep yourself occupied!

I'm the same but it has been made even worse by losing 2 ponies in the last 6 months!

Reeco doesnt do lazy. He's hyper active and wants to investigate things. When we go out for walks I have to hold him back!

In my head I know this but my heart is screaming at me not to let him out of my sight!

Nah, you're not being stupid, it's horse motherhood . Can the trainer send you video/picture updates?
