HAF, I believe KT was not bein rude at all. She is clearly tellin it to you straight. She is not bashin you for no reason, she clearly sees that there is somethin that is not consistent to what you have stated in the past.
You claim to have 7 years experience of riding. Although I am curious to know how long you have actually trained horses? What kinda of trainin have you worked on with horses? I believe there is a big difference between riding and actually trainin.
I have more questions but that's what I would like answered.
Ive ridden for 8 yrs and I've HELPed train horses. Basicly I've helped break a few horses and also there were some green horses that needed some finishing under saddle so I helped do that as well will and chance were the first ones I basically trained by myself.
Thank you for clearin that up. I would also like to say that you should not lean on your mom for payin for chance. Have you thought about goin out and mowin some yards or maybe goin to the neighbors and askin if you could do some work for cash. This would help you with payin for vet bills and such.
You should never make the excuse that you don't have the money, because where there is a will there is a way.
I am glad to here that. Keep us posted, but I would seriously consider what these people are tellin you. They have been doin this stuff for along time and believe me, if they told me my horse was lookin lame. I would do whatever I could to get a vet out there and to make sure, and if the vet did the lame test and the horse turned out not to be lame, then you wouldnt have to worry.
Sometimes you just got to bite the bullet and admit you might be wrong.
