Here is the deal. I am getting a pretty decent amout of money back in taxes this year and am going to put at least two months of horse training in with it. Here are my options and if you think of anything different please tell me, I'm super tired right this moment and open to ideas.
I send Oggi (2003 APHA breeding stock mare) back for 2 months of western pleasure training, the trainer is fantastic and get her that much closer to be show ready. She's already got 2 months under her cinch but I am going to keep putting training on her no matter what.
I send Rain (2006 Arabian x Pinto mare) for her first time to the trainer. Very easy going. I really should get her broke to ride just to get it over and done with. I can sit on her but we don't move much just turns and flexing. I'd be sending her for 2 months solid.
I send both for a month each and maybe just save up enough for another months training for each while they are in training. It wouldn't be guarenteed that I could afford 2 months for both but both could use it desperately.
Also I really want to send Nova (2010 AQHA Dun Filly) in for some touch up work for the halter show season (to work on her showmanship). I could easily show her this season and get her show career started off right.
What do you think?
