    Wait or Move Forward

    I have always struggled with this decision. 20 months ago I lost a horse due to age related issues. I wasn't looking again at the time but a few weeks later I came across another horse, quite by accident. We bonded and I brought him home just 7 weeks after I lost my other horse. Two days ago I had to put him down due to a pasture kick that resulted in a shattered cannon. How crass is it to consider looking for a new partner just two days later even while I am mopping the tears?

    It's not crass at all, but pick one that you truly feel connected to instead of just one that comes your way.

    I am so sorry to hear about your past horses :( I hope you find peace and happiness in another if you do choose.

    Don't feel guilty. There is nothing to feel guilty about. Each life is beautiful in it's own rite, and you honored that with your previous horses. If you have love to give, why keep it to yourself? :)

    It's not crass at all, it just shows you have room in your heart, and life, for more than one horse! Go find yourself a great horse and enjoy him fully, even while you grieve the loss of the last one.

    Some may disagree with me, but finding another horse may help you grieve and move on. You don't have to forget about your last horse, or the horse before that, but it may help you remember why you love riding and horses.

    Depends if you want to move foward or find another friend. If you want to get back in the saddle and move on, I would suggest a competition horse to train with. If you want another friend, find a horse you know is right that shares a special bond with you.
