I can handle her and I have a list of things I need to work on. She dose not need her teeth done, as it was done last year and she has been fine (and as I said I looked and everything is fine). The trainers out here are ether cruel or over priced. And if I sell her she will be dog food (no one wants a 18 year old unregistered horse that needs work when there are 50 others that are better for the same price). If you go back you will see im willing, but everyone started to jump on me AFTER I agreed with them on what I needed to work on/do. I have come a long way with her. She no longer attacks people in her stall. She no longer runs and tried to jump the fence at the site of a rope. She dose not bolt, rear or buck. She can stand tied without trotting in place. She LIKES people now. Her only issue is her brakes need work. They are there, but they are not the best. She stopped bolting, but she is barn sour. I came here asking for help. Not a magic answer, but things to help her. Im already willing to ride in the rope halter and work on her stop. I will do circles with her to work on balance. No trails until her stop is better. Etc. No I will not use a hack as I have seen what she dose. And as much as I would love to work her every day I can't because a cool day here is 106 with a low of 98. So anything major will have to wait till fall. I cannot hire a trainer as I cannot pay 400 a month board (at the trainers) on top of 500 a month training fee. The economy here is crap and its hard enough to keep her much less hire a trainer.
