Exclamation Cant decide beween two horses

I already have 2 horses and I am giving one to my sister.One is a 9 yr old QH her name is Pepper and everyone thinks that I should keep her she is still a little green and she trots on a lead rope but does not lounge she also bites and it is really hard for me to catch.I cant decide if I have a click with her and she was $2000.She is a bay. The other one 9 yr old QH named Socks she is a little more green than the other but I know I have a click with her she really easy to catch and lounge but does not trot on a lead rope.Plus she wants to gallop when I try to ride and I do western pleasure.And she is chestnut with white stripe and socks. She was $400 and really sweet and playful. I have another horse that I ride and compete but she is getting a little old so I only have 4 more years on her and to trail the other.The man that we got them from always rode Pepper. I really like both of them help me please!

He will be worth the wait my dream horse.

So if I am understanding this correctly, you are not sure which green horse you should keep and which to give to your sister?
I'm sure you already have made up your mind, since you mentioned you have a 'click' with one and not the other.
If I were you, I would sell both and buy a broke horse for you and your sister to share. But, if you must keep one, keep the mare mare you have a bond with and get her trained by a professional, and sell the other to buy a broke horse for your sister, or get her trained as well.
4 years is a very long time left to ride a horse. You shouldn't be worried about looking for a new horse right now, maybe in 3 years time though.

How old is your sister? Does she live with you? I think you should ask your sister which horse she wants, and mull over the decision of giving her that horse for a little while. It will help point you in the direction of which horse to give her. In the end it's your decision, but she (your sister) will sway the decision more than people on the internet who've never met you, or the horses, before. Good luck!

Why do you have to give one away? I would not give a green horse to someone young that only rides every now and then.

How do you expect us to accurately make a decision like that? I think you should ask your parents, or your sister, as I previously suggested. We don't know the horses, so we couldn't possibly begin to know which is suited to you more so than your sister.

Sounds like neither horse is suited for either of you..
Sounds like they both need more training . And If your sister only rides every now and then, then two greens don't make a right.
Meaning a green rider and a green horse don't usually make good matches.
This is probably a decision for your parents being as young as you are but why not sell both horses and find a horse you both can ride that is broke and you can learn on.

I wouldn't worry about your sister having her own horse if she's not really that into it.
