So, I'm new to the forum, and im hoping someone can help me out. I am a fifteen year old horse lover and I have two horses. Jack, a bay 8 year old quarter horse gelding, and Tulie, a chestnut 5 year old Dutch Warmblood mare. My aunt built a barn on her property that she owns with my grandparents and is a lovely place. The horses are never locked in a stall and so spoiled. Solo, a 26 year old horse who is very attached to Jack, lives at our barn, while Tulie is being trained at a boarding stable.
Jack Used to be a fabulous horse. I had won shows with him when he was younger and used to be able to jump small courses of jumps. Now, the only thing I have to do with him is feeding him and cleaning his stalls and paddocks. He pretty much mutated into a vicious horse, who scares everyone. He cribs and bites. My aunt who really owns him was trying to train with a Parelli trainer one day, just so she could learn to manage Jack. They'd been working for about an hour when Jack Lounged at her and bit her in the chest. It left a hugggee bruise and Its been about three weeks since this occured and it still hurts occaisonally. Whenever anyone goes near jack, he pins his ears and threatens to bite or kick. My aunt and I are not experienced enough to handle him anymore. My parents hate that I go help my aunt because they are worried for my safety. My grandparents, who want nothing to do with horses are worried for everyone's safety. My aunt, doesn't seem to realize the danger and says that if we sell Jack he will be beaten and Solo will die of loneliness.
Sorry this is so long. But I don't know what to do. I do not enjoy anything about being near Jack and He scares me. My aunt will never let him go and we can not afford sending him to be trained or to hire a trainer. Everyone says to just give him away, but my aunt won't budge. What can I do?
