When is it time to move on and sell the horse?

Hi Everyone,
I have been having alot of frustrations with my horse. I feel I have out-grown his abilities, but I love my horse very much.

I don't know when it is time to sell him or just suck up the things he can't do.

I feel if I sold him, I couldn't get over the fact that I did that, but if I keep him I am quite frustrated at this point.

Thank you

You could always try to lease him out, that way you still had final say over him.

Yep - see if you can lease him out. You don't even have to let him leave where you are now. The only thing to beware of is to be sure that if you HAD TO that you could afford both horses until a new leaser comes around should one leave.

What are you asking of your horse that he can't do? Most horses can do some of everything but may not have the conformation to reach upper level in your chosen discipline.

He is a TWH and he has a really hard time cantering. I just expect to do open shows with him and fair, nothing huge.

The TWH I have known have had no trouble with canter.I think with proper training your horse can learn the canter
Question really is it the horses lack of ability or Rider needing to learn how to train & ask him Either way some help from a trainer would benefit you both.

I've known a couple of gaited horses tha have had trouble cantering. Some lessons with someone experienced in gaited horses may help get him going. The TWH at my current place is one of them - she canters and is just legs and bodily hurtling herself. It looks like a foals canter but it started improving a lot once an experienced gaited horse person was on it.
