I put my horse through training for two months this summer to be broken. He is four years old and an quarter horse arabian. He is very spirited and has a mind of his own. My trainer LOVED him and he told me that my horse would be fantastic in reining. I brought my horse (Tye) home and it was almost the end of summer. I had ran out of time in three short weeks and I was doing soccer and school was back in session. I ran out of time for him.
I have had Tye here since his birth and his mom and sister live here with him too. I tried just simple longing with him again and all he would do for ten or so minutes is just buck and rear and throw his feet the whole time. That was three weeks ago. I am selling him back to my trainer, because he really liked Tye. I just feel SO bad that I gave up. Tye was giving me such a hard time when he came home and just picked up a whole list of new bad habits. My heart is just broken. And I feel like a complete failure on the dreams I have had for him since I was twelve. I just gave up. Am I doing the right thing?
