Being sold.

I have made my final decision after last night, Ive been going on and off about selling chance, but after what she did tonight I decided I can't deal with her anymore. I honestly think shes one of those abused horses that cant quite fully recover from the past.

I was simply walking her around on a loose rein and she took off at a full gallop at the wall i tried on rein stopping her but she reared up ears pinned then kept kinda snakeing her head while galloping finally we go to the wall and she started bucking HARD and rearing at the same time. If I came off that horse I would have gone head first into the wall and been seriously injured. Once she stopped I slipped off and just Cried and told my friend that I just cant do it anymore. Even my friend said she was doing it violently not out of a spook.

Ive given up parelli with her obviously its not getting anywhere with riding. So Im going back to lungeing her before riding and going to work with her till shes sold. Im sure after teh lungeing she would be fine and I could go back to w.t.c again which will be great. Right now I feel parelli was a mistake with her..

If anyone wants to help im looking for a horse between 7-12 yrs around 14.3-15.2H and Has teh basics w.t perferably canter but doesnt need it. I can teach the rest [jumping, cantering, leads, slowing of speed ect.] I just cant handle horses that want to throw there riders.

Thanks for reading this

I know its in the wrong topic but I kinda wanted it seen.

Im sorry, thats always hard. Have you tried doing like densensitizing her?? I understand were your coming from, its no fun having a horse that throws people. Did she spook at something when she took off, or did she just take off?? She all of s sudden could of had a flash back of something bad and when back into fear mode. Well good luck, i hope it works out.

quarter horses.....simply the best

I think once you feel that you have done all that you can do and things haven't improved then you really have no choice in the matter. I think you're making the right decision. You tried did the best you could.

I think it's the best for you and Chance. You have had nothing but problems for as long as you've had her, maybe it's time someone else has a go with her.

I do not think she's one of "those abused horses" though. I think with the right person and the right technique she could be a great mount. She is not for the light of heart, it sounds. (Not saying you are at all.)

I still think the best idea for yourself is to get something well broke, been there done that so you can have fun and return to enjoying riding without having to worry about a greenie.

For the first time in this situation I totally agree with u JDI.

Im gonna get something that needs simple training like jumping or simple lead changes, side passing ect. Love to teach horses simple things like that. Because I can still get on them and w.t.c go on trails and work on jumpin or what ever when im up for it.

I broke that mare myself and gave her all I could. Shes the only mare i fully trained myself. We had it good this summer... I honestly think she just is a b****y mare that needs a "firm" hand and since I KNOW whats happened to her Im to afraid of "letting her down" I was lied to when I bought her. I was told she was jumping a broke when I got her.. it was the opposite.. and i DONT know why i didnt get rid of her then.. Live and learn I guess huh

Its gonna be so hard to see her go down the road and know i wont ever see her again or hear her neigh.... Ive learnt to reconize it. *sigh*

Unfortunately this seems to be the standard answer when the miracle "fixes every horse" system does not work.

Sounds like you just ran into a horse that requires a professional that never closes even one eye when riding her.

Best bet is to get something that you feel safer with as clearly the two of you will not bond to the point of trusting. This horse also could have a problem that is hidden (neurological) and no amount of work will help...difficult to say.

Apparently, and Im sick of it... My horse has an issue and needs someone more firmer then me and more confident I just dont feel safe on her back now. Last night I had to get back on her with my friend hold a dam lunge line! I havent had to do that in a year!! Shes totally blown my trust in her.

I think you're making the right decision, too. My horse was an abused ex racer. He was a doozie and an absolute nit-wit. Very unpredictable, strange, and dangerous. You'll end up with a great horse... just take your time looking =)
