So Riesen is the horse that I have ridden for 2 1/2 years . I have become attached to him but he is not my perfict fit. I want to get more into jumping and he is not that good. The barn where I ride just got shut down and the horses that they havent managed to sell yet are in these makeshift paddoks. I feal really bad because they are willing to sell him to ME and only me for $500 with all his tack and he is a $4,000 horse but my parents wont let me because boarding is to expensive. My instructor has her own barn and I might start riding there but I don't know if I should leave the horse I learned on. Please help. Is it time to move on?
