It's always hard to sell a horse that you have grown fond of. I've had to do it one time, and I swore that I would never do it again. It was sad, but after some time I was happy that I made the decision. She was older and needed a home where she could roam on pasture, not be stabled in a barn day in and day out.
The best thing to do is make sure to choose the next owner by the way that they act around the horse. If you have ideas for another project and this horse seems like she would be better in a different discipline I bet that she would make someone in that disclipline very, very happy.
It's ultimately your choice. I'm here to listen and to talk if you need it. Horses are our best friends. I can guarantee you that it doesn't seem to me like you're trying to give up on your friend. You see her potential and you're willing to see her go through with it. (: Most days people stay in contact with previous owners. I know I stay in touch with the previous owner of my NSH. I send her pictures all the time.
Whatever your decision, your girl is lucky to have a caring owner like you. <3
