If it's not working out for you, I'd sell her.

That's what I did with my mare. Even though no one bought her for money, my fiance rode her, liked her and she is now his.

Vega and I never really got along, every ride was very frustrating, yet when my fiance rode her, she was perfect.

Sounds like the makings of a good ad. Instead of listing her temperament as HOT, I would say she is a 5 in temperament (typical scale is 1 to 10 with 1 being calm and 10 being hot).

It doesn't matter how much a horse is "selling for" it's what they sold for that counts. The market is really down but for a rider, this is a good time of year.

Good luck and keep us informed!

Yah, and she told me when I bought her I would be fine, I first said no to buying her. I should have stuck with my gut. But I really wanted a horse and didnt exactly know what I was getting into. I had lessons when I was seven so I know how to ride and im a good rider, but I didnt have much horse experiance, well I got lots now!

I will only sell her to someone who has enough experiance.

Thanks guys! I think I will list her for 2000 obo... And I will be 100% honest. Its sad when you hear stories of people buying horses that they think is their dream horse then its a complete nightmare...

I agree with the others. I would definitely sell her. Just because you two didnt mesh doesn't mean she's a bad horse, or that you are a bad owner. Sometimes it just doesn't work out. As for the BO, IMO it's none of her business if you want to sell her or not. I would probably give her first chance to buy back (at the price YOU set) but other than that, she has nothing to say. It sounds to me like she is just trying to convince you that she sold you a good horse.

OK! So I took pics yesterday the sun was not on our side, I had to use my iphone to take pics cause I don't have anything better.
I did go on horsetopia,dreamhorse and look for horses that are like gypsy I didnt find anything. Then I looked for horses that I would want to buy and still nothing. So I hope that's a good thing that theres nothing top buy but GYPSY!

I think the first one is the best one. Her expresions arnt that great. And my mom is the worst photagrapher in the world every time I had her square she would miss the shot...

I would find a trainer to work with, one that understands and sees what is going on between you and your horse, someone else other than your current trainer who doesn't seem to be care much.

If selling is what you are set on, I would get an older horse. A horse that has done it all and doesn't get raddled by much. It sounds like your mare is quite intelligent and knows you get frightened and she knows how to get you there and she abuses that.

Yah my trainier is the only wone that is worth going to. I wish there are more barns around here I hear a lot of bad things about a barn in the next town over but its still really far. Isnt my horse old 14? That's kinda like old teenager right? Cause 18 is like old grandpa...lol. Well all the 18-20 horses I've seen are grandpas.

But this last spook that happened I honestly was not afraid or anything. The first towel incident that she spooked at I was kinda rattled but then I was really calm and happy the next few laps around the arena then boom the gate slightly clashed. I mean it was just lame lame lame that she bolted at that. And When ever she does that I put her right back to work I don't just get off and throw her in her stall. But I think selling is the best thing....

Lol ,is that a bad thing?

WHOOOOO! I got one interest! A lady who is over 50 so im hoping she has experiance. I told her a lot about gypsy since she asked if she was broke. Yah she's broke but with energy. Gypsy has had a lot of training and work put into her, I put in the ad that she has energy and needs a job. Hopefully the lady will buy her and it will be a fast easy sale. :) Then I can buy a percheron...lol I really want one. I just love them and their not suppose to be to spooky I mean disney land does use them. Maybe a cross it might be good in dressage but would be fun to jump.
Wish me luck on this lady!
