Well, my mare is stubborn, spooky, and snorts...a lot, but she's being professionally trained ($$$), and well taken care of ($$$), spoiled beyond belief ($$$$$), and extremely well loved (priceless). She's loving her fellow herdmates and loves having room to run, and is being exercised and worked daily. She went from being scared of everything and everyone to learning trust and respect. She's got a long ways to go, but has come so far in such a short amount of time. It's been frustrating at times watching some of my friends just get up and ride or head out on trail and we can't go (yet), but I know we will eventually get there and time and patience are two things I have a lot of. Money...I wouldn't have done it if I couldn't afford it. I made sure to do my research well in advance and very thoroughly to better my budget and make sure I wasn't going to go outside my means. I'm glad I can afford the professional training! I noticed a difference in her after just a few days of her being worked with. I'm also glad I'm confident as she's done some things that would scare some newbys, but I am never over confident as she's still an animal with a mind of her own...
