    From all im reading in your posts the horse is ok it is your rideing ability and time frame for rideing. It will make no difference what horse you get as long as you are afraid of them and don't ride them often you will have issues with them the best trained horse in the world will give you problems if you are afraid of them first off and any horse needs to be ridden often if you are to enjoy them. You have a very long time frame between rides in what you have stated. Think about what you have been telling us . When you ride the first day the horse is spooky and acts up then you ride the second day and you think a miracle has happened to your horse . That should be telling you that your horse needs ridden a lot more then you are rideing, Then you say that you ride other boarders horses and are doing good and they are acting good for you . Well the others are being ridden more so they are adjusted to it . Where your horse is not being ridden as often so sure it will act up when you first ride it since it is full of energy and wants to go . Do your horse and your self a favor stop looking past the barn stall of your horse for the perfect beginners horse since you may have him right there in your stall . Saddle up put the miles and time in to your horse and your self as it seems the best horse for you is your own horse on the second days ride imagine what a great horse you will have after the 3rd and 4th days ride. I have a mustang mare here that will test me the first day out after she has been laid off a while and I do mean test me she is pure mustang and will push me to the limits . But after I've ridden her a few days in a row she is a perfect horse my 5 yr old can ride any where bt the first day out after she hasnt been rode she will give me a real work out but after that she is super. So ride your horse and see what a good horse she is after a few weeks of rideing her almost everyday all horses will push you after they have been being lazy for a while

    Personally I think you need to sell her and buy yourself a beginner horse. You arent able to provide her with what she needs to progress eg; confidence, knowledge and experience training and dealing with this kind of horse. She also isnt able to provide what you need eg; level headedness, experience etc

    You are fearful at the moment and you are only still learning. To me that's not a good thing. You need to be able to gain confidence at this stage. Ideally you should have an older, well trained, bombproof kinda horse. One that you can learn all these things on without worrying to much about what the horse is doing

    Good luck with her but IMO selling is her is probably best for you and her unless, you have money to send her away to be re-broken and or trained. I guess that's another idea
