I can't ride her out side the indoor anymore... I have to lunge her before riding... I guess you can say its more effort then I want to put into just riidng.....
The only thing is.. is that she is a one person horse.. very attached to me and has a hard time trusting anyone but me..
Well, to me it sounds like you aren't completely happy with her..It takes time. I've got one that is still somewhat green (he went backwards in his training) because I just don't have much time anymore and I live so far away from home. It gets frustrating when I want to ride him but I just remember to be patient and things will come. It's not really his fault. He was TERRIBLE when I got him but I rode him almost every day for the first while that I had him and he turned into the perfect angel. He'd do anything for me and was easy to train once he trusted me and we started understanding each other.
But if you aren't happy with her and this isn't want you want from a horse and can't put in all the time then I don't feel that it's fair to either of you to keep her around.
With the right amount of work into it, you can find a wonderful owner for her and I'm sure she'll bond with the new people in time and you'll find your dream horse and the situation will be fair all the way around.
