"Oh we're selling Magic (Not real name) because we don't have enough room in the paddock and because Jane (Not real name) is quitting riding. We'll sell her to you cheaper (Au$2,000 cheaper mind you) because we trust you and think you'll do a good job because you did a good job with Joe (who hasn't competed in yonks because I don't event/jump anymore)."
So Mum was like "You don't have time or room for this horse until you finish final year and sell two others". In the meantime the sellers have purchased two new horses - one for Jane and her daughter.
"Oh Jane, thought you weren't riding anymore,"
"Magic is too heavy on the bit and downhill for me, so I bought Dust"
A successful, medium graded dressage horse is heavy on the bit and downhill? Alarm bells go off and so I begin the search for a different horse =P
