Just wanted to add that there is more to the story than whats being posted. So my previous post was probably confusing to this forum...

The trainer just wants misty to find a good home and not go back to her old ways.

Well this is even more confusing! Who is Misty's owner, Lacyloo or Mistygirl?

I do not own the horse. Or trainer. Just followed the horses progress since the new training started. I Just want to see the horse go to someone experienced so no one gets hurt.

Anyways ill butt out-

Ah, that makes sense! Wasn't trying to tell you to butt out, was just confused for a second.

If the OP is not experienced then it is very possible that a green horse isn't suitable and my last comment was really contingent on her being able to continue with the horses training in an effective manner. I have not been following the horses progress so can't comment on her ability.

OP, as for price, I wouldn't hold much hope for getting over $1000. Probably closer to $500 for an unregistered 7yo that requires more training.

I just want to clear a few things up. I am the barn owner of the stable where Misty was/is being worked with by my assistant. Misty came here with many bad habits, including kicking, biting, dangerous to lead, and her favorite, slamming her whole head and neck into her handler. In the few weeks that's she been here, she's overcome many of these issues, but she still reverts back to her old ways with her owner unless the owner is given specific instructions and supervision while handling Misty.
We don't want to own this horse, but we would very much like to find her an appropriate experienced horse person so Misty will have the best chance of becoming a safe, useful horse.
Misty is very smart, but she's learned that she is bigger, stronger, and quicker than people, which makes her potentially dangerous in the wrong hands.
The person in the video is the trainer, and she needed to handle Misty firmly and consistently in a military style or Misty would take advantage. I would not classify her as green broke, she is just started under saddle. In my opinion, less than two weeks under saddle does not make green broke.
We wish Misty the very best in life and hope she finds the right owner.

Aha, it seems there was a lot more to the story (as you mentioned Lacyloo!), thanks for clarifying Natisha. I guess she isn't as honest a horse as the video would suggest, that rider was doing a nice job.

I hope Misty can find a good home too. Unfortunately as you have described her, I would think giving her away to an appropriate home would be the best course of action. There are many good horses out there that you can pick up for less than $500 so finding someone who is willing to pay good money for a pushy, unsafe, unbroken and unregistered horse will sure be difficult.

Thank you for clarifying, Natisha. I agree with Sarah, simply finding the right home would be more important than getting money out of her.

Agreed.

Time to give the horse to someone who can handle her. Money should not even be an issue at this point.

Its sad though i'm very passionet on horses and that was one thing I never ever wanted to give up on i'm sure if I gave her away i'll never be able to afford another horse. She only has here moods when she's in heat and shes's not that bad anymore. I'm still figuring out if i'm giving her away or not. It depends on what the owner of this other horse says to me first if i'm getting this horse for free I might give her away I wanted to be able to get another horse. This horse ment everything to me and i'm just not good enough I guess I knew this was going to happen someday and wasn't looking forward to it!

Misty, we all have times in our lives where we have to admit that we are not the right fit to a horse. Mr. AB's horse and I do not get along at all. Period. (That is OK, he does not like my horse.) Not being the right fit for a specific horse is not a failure.

The failure only comes in when we are not willing to open our eyes and do what is best for the horse.

If you have to give Misty away and that means you can not buy another horse for a while it is not the end of the world. Set a little money aside every week and save up and then you will be able to buy a new horse.
