This was exactly what I was told, word for word, when I finally decided to sell the horse I had that was too much for me. She was a friesian/TWH cross, and she'd get lathered just pacing while I cleaned her stall. I was told what is mentioned above by the third
trainer I had in to work with her. The first two had quit on her, just citing she was too much horse for them
Saying something straight out and honest is usually the best way to get through. I respected the third trainer so much more for playing it straight with me.
