    An yes, I do have my trainer coming with me, (she already knows the half arab) because the mare is staying at her place. Since the guy moved, he knew my trainer and is now boarding the mare at her place.

    Thanks for all the opinions, but i'd rather not have you say I have no sense, and that my paint is going to end up looking like she was pregnant because i'd leave her out in the pasture. That is rude and if you think that I'd really rather have you not say that on this thread, the paint mare was not my first horse, I had two before her, in which one was a greenie like the arab.

    I actually have no problem with people taking in green horses if they wish to donate lots of time and either work with the trainer or know how to train. And the person clearly understands what means taking in youngster or a green horse (and I've been there and regret I didn't know everything I know these days when I was making my own decision). I also have no problem if someone takes a horse in as a pet due to certain reasons (health issues, and so on).

    You have to honestly ask yourself:
    What are your goals with the horse?
    Are you a good rider gentle hands and good seat, who will be able to sit through the spook, bolt, buck, etc. (unless you send her to the trainer to put mileage on)?
    Do you have money for the trainer and there is one around you can use? (from your post it sounds like you don't have experience training horses)
    Thank you! I know I need to hear the pro's and con's and even people being not so nice. But I really appreciate that, and yes, this mare when me & my trainer finish up with her will be my riding horse.

    That sounds complelty opposite that was said. You kind of contradicting yourself you said that this arab is not very trained she is kind of green broke and that its younger. So you would have two horses that you wont really feel safe on. For one id keep your paint cause she needs more time then the other. If you have to then that's all the more work for you and in the end one of them is just going to be sitting there going to waste. If your going to get another horse get one that you can already ride and it can sit there and not be ridden for a long time and that way you can work with your mare too and then when you really want to go for a sunday rride you could go jump on that already trained calm easy going horse. So youll be riding one and working with the other, instead of training two or leaving them both to waste

    If you have a good trainer who will be working with her and you really clicked with the horse then I don't see anything wrong with it. I also want to add that "green" really depends on horse. Some are naturally calm and brave for trail riding and it doesn't take long to put more mileage on them (don't know if your horse is like that, just a general observation).

    And a little more negativity here... I have 2 horses and with job and commute it's really hard to devote enough time to work with both of them. Although I do my best of course. If you plan on working with both horses make sure you'll have enough time for both of them.

    Just curious, why can't you put your paint horse in work with your trainer to put more mileage and training on her? That would definitely help with "safety".

    Good point.

    Also, I personally think you should sell your mare you've had if you haven't progressed in her training, and especially if you don't plan on working with her until this other filly is well broke.

    Think of it like a bad relationship....she has needs, and I'm sure someone else can meet them. There are plenty of fish in the sea.

    We are all just simply telling you the truth. Don't make the wrong decision... think about the horses first
