I have had my mare for nearly 4years now. She is the sweetest creature you will ever encounter!! Very loving and a complete softy!Shes never a problem to have around and I absolutely love her to bits!
She persistantly causes problems for herself which in turn makes a problem for me! I am desperate to go out and compete LOADS! I want to event and also compete dressage and sj seperately. She has a huge jump and has been jumping fab but seems to have lost all interest or confidence in herself and is now battering my confidence also (which was zilch anyway). She is a big pole roller!!
Also she has always been a problem to load and really picks and chooses when she wants to play and when she doesnt. She never hots up or stresses either loading or once on and travelling, but I think she likes to make my life difficult!
She goes out and consistantly gets 70% in her dressage tests and always 9's for her canter, and is a huge hit with the judges but the whole loadin problem shadows the whole experience. She has recently taken to going on the lorry first time but has now decided that reversing off at high speed is the way to go and so I now have to go through sorting this probelm out? Grrr
I know they all have their problems but each time I iron one out she creates another and now I feel like time is running short for me to get out there and do the things I want to do. She will hack all day long and school, xc, show, dressage but I am not sure whether to call it a day with her and buy something that does exactly what it says on the packet? Or something that has done a little more as I have had her from baby and produced her myself.
I love her to bits and its the hardest decision I've ever had to make but its a thought that wont go away.
What do you guys think I should do???
A very sad,
