I've already proved a barn full of people wrong about Chance
I get complimented on well we work together when she's being good.
I know I can get her past that huge road block..
Im sure others could do it faster then I could but I want to be the one to finish her.
Pictures to show what I can and have done with her[riding wise]
To me it would feel like I put all the hard work into it for nothing.
The only thing I got out of this thread was the overwhelming feeling that you are only doing this to 'prove' something. You want to stick it to the people who told you that you couldn't do it.
That is NOT the right mentality to have when training a horse, especially one with issues like Chance. That attitude is how people get hurt.
I seriously cringe when I see one of your posts now. I just know it will be the same things over again. It's like a car crash - I know I won't like what I see but I can't look away. I just hope it doesn't end up like a car crash.
I also can't stand people who sell horses only because they need something to get them further...
That's funny, I can't stand people who keep a horse out of pride, ego, or stubbornness. I also can't stand people who refuse to sell horses to someone more capable when they can't handle the problems they have. I can't stand the fact they don't understand it is doing the horse NO FAVOURS.
but the mental damage that would probably do to her.
And my only thoughts on this are:
2. EGO, EGO, EGO.
No horse will turn into a quivering, broken, mentally damaged wreck from being sold to a well picked home. They DO turn into mentally damaged wrecks when people refuse to acknowledge that they aren't the one most suitable and find the person who is suitable.
