So, if any of you have read my old posts,you'll know that I have a 4 year old gelding named Lakota. When he turned 3 last year, I was trying to find someone to break him, but all the trainers in my area told me that they weren't taking anymore outside horses. So, I gave up on any hope of getting him trained that year, and kept him out at pasture.
Skip ahead a year, and he's 4 years old now. I've been trying to find a trainer in my area, but it's kind of difficult.
The first person that I talked to backed out on me at last minute. He also gave me a lame excuse, saying he was "donating food & clothes for charity all month".
My uncle is friends with a man who actually broke & trained a roping horse for George Strait. The problem with him is that he is waaay too expensive (charging over 500 a month) and other than George Strait, who of course none of us know personally, I don't have any references.
My second option is a girl who's only about a year or 2 older than me. I've known her personally for years, and I know that she's a really great rider, and she's broke all of her own horses to ride. Since we've known each other for so long, she's giving me a discount by only charging 250 a month.
I was supposed to practice loading my horse in the trailer today, since he hasn't been loaded in such a long time. But the weather didn't permit for that, so it didn't happen.
I'm just ready to get the ball rolling. Waiting this long is just cruel torture. -.-
I'm also selling my other gelding, and it seems like all the people who are "interested" are just tire kickers. I'm sick of playing around. Something's gotta give.
