Unhappy (not so) dangerous horse

i sold my horses about 2 monthes ago because there were some problems surrounding them. i was supposed to get a new horse soon after but now my parents cant afford it. my neighbor keeps a mare at my house who i ride all the time. she sometimes jumps and spooks easily but i am a confident rider and have been since i could walk, but where i see a sensitive and spirited animal, my parents see a horse that is a flop at roping becuase of a tendancy to spook in the gate. how can i convince them that this horse was just not meant for roping, but that it doesnt make her a dangerous mount?

Talking to your parents would be really be the best option. Work with the horse to show her potential in other events. Can't really help much more.

Good luck.

I agree with the other poster. Show them what she can do instead of focus on the one thing she can't do. Other than talk to your parents, that's all you can do.

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I'm not sure why your parents care what a boarded horse can or cannot do?

Agreed, if you can get the horse working in other events, then do so...as long as the people who own her don't mind her changing disciplines, that is (that would be your first task in this).
