It is normal to go through stages when you are growing up and be less into things.
However I don't think it's normal to think that your school work is getting in the way of having a horse. How many hours do you spend doing homework a night? Is it all weekend?
I highly doubt that your school work is the issue, I think you have lost interest and want another reason that seems more acceptable.
There's nothing wrong with selling a horse, I have sold plenty, but for honest reasons.
