I'm p***d. Excuse my french, but that's the mildest word I can think of. I was told by my trainer yesterday (who is eventing instructor) that my qh worth nothing, won't do any dressage or jumping, and is good for trail riding only.
Yes, she's not an english horse (she's ranch bred qh with decent pedigree I must add, I got her out of not-so-good situation as a youngster), but hey, the "basic" dressage in my understanding is not piaffe and pirouette but solid correct WTC, leg yield, and so on. I've been working hard this year with both of them and even granted I'm not a great rider they still did lots of progress comparable with the last year. And my qh doesn't like trails much (although she goes if I go to the park, just doesn't show any excitement) as well she's not big about cow work (she kicks them).
Is it indeed all that useless and she's not good for anything? Should I try something else? But I'm out of ideas frankly. Yes, I'm ranting here, but I'm really unhappy. And no, she doesn't have big medical/confo flows (although she's long backed and short legs) as well as selling her is out of question.
