    Hehe yea I think having her gone would just be better. She's my best friend on ground... and that's about it lol. I just can't beleive she stopped running the second I fall like were you trying to dump me! And she just licked and chewed! I mean if she felt me on her neck then over head you think she would stop nope she waits till I hit teh ground. *sigh*

    Till she's sold its western saddle time lol

    If someone's willing to pay $2000 for Chance, take it and run to the nearest bank. That is almost literally a one time offer.

    ETA - don't expect that much for her though. With her problems, her age, etc, you would be lucky to fetch half that in today's market.

    HAF, you know where I still stand. I still believe Chance is a WONDERFUL horse and has so much potential. I don't think she purposely just took off with you for the sake of throwing you. You said someone undid velcro...well that would spook some horses. I knew a horse that if that happened to him, he well, would have killed me because he gets that afraid. Sonny has taken off before on me and when I fell he stopped. Did that mean he meant to get me off? Probably not.

    I think with a good trainer (*coughs*Parelli Trainer*coughs*) she'd be a great horse. I think there's at least one person here that would agree with me. But, the choice is entirely up to you...

    I partially agree with Sonny - I think Chance needs a trainer, and I'm sorry HAF, it's not you. This horse needs to be brought along by someone who can sit a buck and spook, and know how to deal with it instantly.

    However, from our conversations, I do not think Parelli is the way to go with this mare. She seems too smart and too quick to catch on to things to do well with a Parelli trainer. Some horses might do well with the 7 games, I do not think Chance is one of those horses. This is from what YOU have told me in our conversations, I am not just pulling this out of thin air.

    Get this horse to a trainer (like I've been advising from the get-go), and go from there. You have had problems with this mare since day 1, and you aren't going to go anywhere if you are just doing circles.

    Then sell her to someone who will be able to handle her and get a horse that you're going to be able to enjoy.

    You know my position on this, and that's my line in the sand. Feel free to PM me.

    This mare needs a new home, someone she clicks with on the ground and in the saddle. Someone who can sit through all her problems and help her to get over them. She needs a very very very experienced trainer to work with her, and for quite some time I would say. Even after that I would almost say she would definitely need an experienced rider. I know if you were near Ohio I have a really nice older mustang mare that is broker than broke and has the go anywhere do anything kind of attitude and I know someone who would buy this mare because she only buys horses with "problems" and then finds them a new home once they are safe again. If it was me with this mare, I would honestly find someone who has a lot of experience with wild mustangs, as what you have said in this post, is what she reminds me of acting like. The things you described are some of the many things I have taken in peoples mustangs for because they were unable to train through their problems. Mustangs are stubborn, quick minded, and will do almost anything to get out of what you are trying to get them to do. Once they bond really well with someone they do just great and the problems go away quickly. She is definitely one of those that sounds to smart for her own good and she needs someone whose mind runs faster than hers

    Minihorse! I live in maine.. PM if you think it would work out. YES chance is one in a million. I was also bareback when she did this. It wasnt just a spook though she was rearing and bucking for the whole lesson and everything else..I checked her back and its perfectly fine. Im an exsperinced with horses that need to be finished and slight bucking or rearing problems but nothing like chance. My mom said I could send her to a professional trainer after winter.. but I don't know any.....

    How long did she buck for? Ask your Mom to describe what she saw, what type of bucks. Is she running you into the wall?
    How old she? How long it's been going on? Does she do it everytime? How long are you warming her up for?
    What breed is she?

    Bareback is tough, no wonder she dumped you. If you go for it again , saddle up and hang on! Make sure you are ready and lean back into the bucks, turn her tight, holler 'No!', and work the heck out of her after she calms down.
