She was going to the killers, I would say that is 'saving' her. Yes, she is a rescue, as she was taken from these people who beat her, starved her, etc. Please know more details before you go judging. Thanks.

    This is retaining control. If they train the horse to be a decent mount can they sell the mare and keep the profit? If I am spending money on a horse (either through purchase price or care/time spent training) I want to do with it what I please. I understand your intention of wanting to make sure she is in a good home, but there are plenty of people like Speed Racer who would rather not be bothered with dealing with a third party.

    Rescue horses are at rescues for a reason. Much like your 'not right in the head' mare, they all have something wrong with them.

    You sound extremely young and inexperienced, and your parents don't sound very knowledgeable, either. If the rescue is a reputable one, they're not likely to adopt a horse out to you.
    I also have another rescue who has come a very long way and is an amazing horse. Was in worse circumstances than Jewels. I've worked so hard with him and he's better than my two mares who are not rescues. I am young, but I know what to do with a horse but this horse is just screwed up in the head. She doesn't have both paddles hitting the water. My mother is very knowledgeable, thank you very much. As for my father, he's dead. I'm sure they will, as we do know what we are doing.

    If we find the right people, they won't sell her.

    That wasn't my question. Are you including a clause in your contract saying they can not sell her?

    No, but I'm hoping that they wouldn't.

    Send her to a trainer and see if they can fix her.
    I am very doubtful you could give her away at this point to someone other than the rescue. There are tons of free/cheap horses that are sane.

    Again, why not get one of these instead of another 'rescue'?

    Just forget it. If I'm going to get in an argument with somebody, I'm guessing who is older than 21, just forget it. I don't need people telling me all that I'm doing wrong when it is working out quite well. I've had many people tell me that I'm doing an excellent job. I've also had people who either don't know what they're talking about (Such as a girl who got bucked off my horse twice because she wouldn't listen to me.) or somebody who doesn't know all the details say that I don't know what I'm doing. Thanks for the replies.

    Good for you for seeking a better suited home for her. I see that you were merely wondering about price, but like others mentioned, she would need to be free. I also commend you for wanting to keep tabs and a contract is good for that. That way if the next person who gets her doesnt like her, they can't just in turn send her to auction. I praise your efforts. Don't listen to anyone negative, you are doing the right thing.

    Because we are starting a non-profit for therapeutic riding and horse rescue. I seem to fall in love with some rescues, such as Rolex. I didn't really like Jewels when I saw her.

    THANK YOU!! I really needed that. I've had 2 too many people say I don't know what I'm doing and it really gets me down and makes me feel like I'm just an idiot. Thanks for the complement.
