    It sounds like you love this horse. If you want to keep her as a companion that's great....but if you want to RIDE....its going to take a lot training. And sometiems you just don't have the skill/patience/time/guts required to take it all on. If you feel you can't handle it...try maybe getting a trainer. IF not....get a quieter horse, something YOU can handle and WANT to handle. I know the choice is hard. But make sure you find a good good home, and itll make it easier....not a lot....but a little.


    And what state are you located in?
    If you're near NJ maybe I could help you

    Green Broke
    I've decided to work with her for the winter and see how things go. I noticed the day she freaked on me was the day she wasnt lunged and in a stall all day. Disaster from step 1.

    If I get enough money ill send her to a professional trainer cause I know there are going to be some things I wont know how to teach.

    Everyone told me ground work ground work ground work. Well we've done ground work and is a complete angel on ground and KNOWS what to do but the second you on her she's lost because she can't see you. I think she just needs A LOT More time in the saddle... and ill be using the western saddle. :P Keep me at least a chance to stay put.

    But I know eventually im going to need to sell her due to me getting way to tall.

    No one is really buying horses right now so Im going to work with her for the winter see how things go and work from there. But I know im going to need a lot of advice from you guys! And I hope you guys are willing to help! :)

    Thanks everyone for the replies!! And for a while there I was dead set on selling her but after talking to about 5 people about her who wanted her then turned her down I decided not to sell her.

    Not many people want a green horse so I think if I am to really sell her she needs some more training under her.

    Sell her and you will find a better mount, but take your time.

    If you want to work with her and feel that you can make her better, that's great. I know that we will all be here to support you through good and bad. I am very happy to hear that you had a good day with her and I think you are right, she does need more time under saddle. I wouldn't go bareback until you have her behaving exactly like you want her to and after she is very broke. Also, when you have to sell her, if you can get her over most of her issue, she will bring more money. Keep working with her, have patience, and stay committed. If you have questions, then ask your trainer or post here. I am sure that there are lots of people willing to help. :) Good luck.
