It sounds like you love this horse. If you want to keep her as a companion thats great....but if you want to RIDE....its going to take a lot training. And sometiems you just dont have the skill/patience/time/guts required to take it all on. If you feel you cant 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 youre near NJ maybe i could help you

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 gonna 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 shes lost because she cant 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 gonna need to sell her due to me getting way to tall.

No one is really buying horses right now so Im gonna work with her for the winter see how things go and work from there. But I know im gonna 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.

A good cowboy always has a better horse at the end of the ride, a poor cowboy will be afoot reguardless of the horse.

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.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/
